The DCF Quarterly Reports contain statistical tables and graphs which provide a demographic description of DCF consumers and foster care providers as well as placement dynamics, case openings, adoption/guardianship subsidies, child maltreatment reporting, and District Attorney referrals. The statistics are generated at three month intervals during the state fiscal year. Information is presented at a regional level as well as statewide.

Note: As of 2015, DCF quarterly statistics will be available in profile format at the statewide, regional and area office level versus the format described above. Please see the link to Quarterly/Annual Data Profiles to access these reports.
