In order to improve the clarity, usability, and timeliness of DCS reports, DCS has consolidated currently reported metrics into a streamlined monthly reporting structure:
Monthly Operational, Workforce, and Financial Report
Report consists of data tables that track frequently used operations, workforce and financial metrics.
- Operational: Includes key metrics for monitoring agency process improvement, including metrics from the program areas of intake, investigations, out-of-home care, permanency, prevention, and support services.
- Demographics Out-of-Home Population: Includes demographic and placement information for all children in DCS’s custody.
- Workforce: A continuation of monthly workforce data currently reported in the Monthly Staffing Report, which provides vacancy, new hire and separation data by job type.
- Financial: A continuation of the 30th of the month financial report currently reported by the agency, which provides monthly financial information by spending category and fund source.

Performance Measures Dashboard
The Arizona Department of Child Safety Performance Measures Dashboard went live on 3-29-2013 and is intended to provide quarterly information on performance measures that are vital to the Department and the public in meeting our mutual goals of child safety, well-being and permanency for Arizona's children involved with the child welfare system.
This Dashboard is one component of the Department's continuous efforts to provide information in a transparent manner to the public. It is the Department’s intent, with the addition of measures over time, that this website will provide the public with a comprehensive overview of Arizona’s child welfare system.
These initial measures, as well as future ones, are intended to provide users with a dynamic way to analyze data at the county and statewide level for the state of Arizona.
Please note that due to data entry requirements and to ensure the integrity of all posted data, there is a 60 day lag time between the end of each calendar quarter and the posting of the updated values.
