Community Services have developed specialist statistical analysis and modelling on a range of issues to support and inform policy, practice and reform in the areas of child protection, early intervention and out-of-home care.
These reports help to provide a better understanding of Community Services clients and their interaction with the child protection system. They also assist in identify emerging issues and trends in order to make improvements across Community Services programs.
