Child Welfare Data Reports
This section provides all of the publicly available Massachusetts Department of Children and Families data reports we are aware of. It also includes relevant Juvenile Court statistics. Not all of these are currently easily accessible online. This site includes:
- state reports, including by line item requirements in DCF’s budget, as well as reports that do not appear to be required by any particular legal authority
- reports submitted to the federal government by DCF
- reports that national entities produce that include data from DCF compared to data from other states. This includes the KIDS COUNT data base, a searchable data base that includes child welfare and a variety of other child-related indicators
- Juvenile Court statistics on numbers of court filings by type
Please note that not all reports required by state law are publicly available.
If you are aware of other publicly available reports that contain data from the Massachusetts Department of Children and Families, please let us know by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
