CFSR Statewide Data Indicators

Find information about using CFSR statewide data indicators to help improve state child welfare systems and to enhance strategic planning and CQI strategies.

Child and Family Services Review (CFSR) statewide data indicators provide performance information on states' child safety and permanency outcomes. The statewide data indicators are aggregate measures calculated using information that states report to the Adoption and Foster Care Analysis and Reporting System (AFCARS) and the National Child Abuse and Neglect Data System (NCANDS). State child welfare agency leaders, managers, continuous quality improvement (CQI) staff, judicial and legal communities, and others can use statewide data indicators to help evaluate state child welfare systems and inform strategic planning and CQI efforts.
