  • Description
    Children in Placement by Age reports the number of children in Connecticut Department of Children and Families (DCF) placement by Age Group.
  • Full Description
    This dataset contains aggregate data concerning the number of unique children placed in open DCF placements at a single point in time - July 1st of each State Fiscal Year. These figures are disaggregated by Region, Age Group based on the child's age on the date of observation, whether placement is in or out-of-state, and by the Type of Placement in which the child is residing on the observation date. The 'Other' Region category includes all cases that are not being served by a Regional DCF Office. This includes cases being served as/by Aftercare, General Administration, Treatment Services, Special Investigations Unit, DCF Hotline, or cases that have not been assigned to a DCF Regional office as of the date of observation. Note: Not every combination of filters will have values. CTData also carries this data disaggregated by Racial and Ethnic Groups and by Gender.
