¹Definition: Of all children who had been in substitute care 24 months or more and exited to permanency during the fiscal year, the percentage that re-entered substitute care within 12 months of their discharge.
Denominator: Number of children in substitute care on the first day of the fiscal year who had been in care for 24 months or more who were discharged to permanency (reunification, living with a relative, adoption, or guardianship) within 12 months.
Numerator: Number of children who re-enter substitute care within 12 months of discharge. If a child has multiple re-entries within 12 months of discharge, only his/her first re-entry is selected.
Exclusions: Children who re-enter care and stay 7 days or fewer are excluded from the numerator.

* Years marked with an asterisk (*) do not reflect a complete year of data.

Totals 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.

The data used to compute these indicators come from two Illinois DCFS data systems: the Statewide Automated Child Welfare Information System (SACWIS) and the Child and Youth Centered Information System (CYCIS). Both the SACWIS data and the CYCIS data were extracted on 6/30/2021. All indicators are calculated based on the state fiscal year, which spans the 12-month period from July 1 to June 30.
