The information available in the USSDS data bases was sufficient to permit generally complete and detailed analyses of the children's whereabouts at the time of DCFS case closure.
At the end of the six-year observation period, the groups were compared on total days of supervision by or involvement of a public agency during the six years, total number of referrals to DCFS, public agency involvement after DCFS closure (involvement of public agencies after DCFS case closure took many forms, including [using the titles from the USSDS database] "protective counseling," "protective supervision," "observation and assessment," "youth corrections-targeted case management," and "supervision in substitute care"), reasons for discontinuing service, and status of the family at termination of public agency involvement.
Because the USSDS is a statewide system, even if the child changed residences within the state, all referrals to DCFS were found in the same database.
