¹Definition: Of all children who were victims of a substantiated maltreatment report during the fiscal year, the percentage that were victims of another substantiated maltreatment report within 12 months.
Denominator: The number of children with at least one substantiated maltreatment report during the fiscal year.
Numerator: The number of children that had another substantiated maltreatment report within 12 months of their initial report.
Exclusions: 1) subsequent reports of maltreatment within 14 days of the initial report are excluded; 2) multiple reports on the same incident date are excluded; 3) substantiated reports of allegation 60 (Environment Injurious to Health and Welfare) between October 1, 2001-December 31, 2013 and May 31, 2014-June 11, 2014 are excluded.

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 9/30/2021. All indicators are calculated based on the state fiscal year, which spans the 12-month period from July 1 to June 30.
