¹Totals for “ALL CHILDREN” include records that may be missing geographic or demographic information, and so may exceed the sum of any given breakdown. For example, adding numbers for Cook, Northern, Central, and Southern regions may not produce the same total as that listed for ALL CHILDREN.

²Population: The number of children in substitute care at the end of the fiscal year.
Measure: The median distance (in miles) from the child’s home of origin to the child’s placement at the end of the fiscal year. Only children with valid address data are included. Region and sub-region categories are based on where the case opened.
