¹Definition: Of all children who entered foster care during the fiscal year and attained permanency within 12 months, the percentage that re-entered substitute care within 12 months of their discharge.
Denominator: Number of children who entered substitute care during the fiscal year and were discharged within 12 months to reunification, living with a relative, adoption, or guardianship.
Numerator: Number of children who re-entered substitute care within 12 months of discharge. If a child had multiple re-entries within 12 months of discharge, only his/her first re-entry is selected.
Exclusions: 1) Children who enter care and stay 7 days or fewer are excluded from the denominator. 2) 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.
