This report analyzes long-term child welfare placement trends in Allegheny County from 2008 through 2017. The report gives an overview of the child welfare caseload during the decade, describes characteristics of children in placement, and looks at children’s placements: what type of placements were used, how long children stayed there, where they went after their placement ended (exits) and how many returned to the child welfare system after returning home (re-entries).
