Learn about the definition and calculation of the CFSR statewide data indicator placement stability.
This factsheet helps child welfare leaders, managers, data and continuous quality improvement (CQI) staff, and others understand and explain the Child and Family Services Review (CFSR) statewide data indicator placement stability. This indicator measures whether children who were removed from their homes experience stability in their placement setting while they are in foster care. Performance on this indicator is used as part of the CFSR Round 4 process to evaluate CFSR Permanency Outcome 1 and can also inform CQI, program monitoring, and strategic planning activities. Part of the CFSR Round 4 Statewide Data Indicator Series, this factsheet takes complex data calculations related to state and national performance and condenses them into a digestible reference for individual or group learning.
