About the measure: Notification in this measure is a counting unit of reports of suspected acts or risks of child abuse, neglect or harm (event) such that one notification is one unique event for one unique child. Notifications are referred following an initial assessment. This measure only counts those notifications which are initially assessed as requiring an investigation. Notifications are recorded for the month in which they are received, not the month in which they are referred. Some referrals are made in months subsequent to the month when the notification was received. Published figures are revised to account for this.

About the data: Data may vary from that previously published due to data reporting practices.

About the measure: This indicator measures the number of children who were placed in overnight care away from their usual home. Out-of-home care only includes placements for which the State made or offered a financial payment, in accordance with the national definition (see page 45 of Child protection Australia 2013-14). However, it excludes children not under care and protection orders in the Supported Extended Family Program or whose carers receive the Relatives Allowance.
