¹Definition: Of all children ages 12 to 17 entering substitute care, the percentage that run away from a substitute care placement during their first year.
Denominator: The number of children ages 12 to 17 entering substitute care during the fiscal year.
Numerator: The number of children that run away from their substitute care placement within one year from the case opening date. Runaway includes: Runaway, Abducted, and Whereabouts Unknown.
Exclusions: Children who enter care and stay 7 days or fewer 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.
