The primary benefit from this contract will be the systematic analysis of the experiences and outcomes for children involved in abuse, neglect, and dependency cases in juvenile courts. Juvenile court information will be extracted from the JWise court information tracking system of the NC AOC Technology Services Division. Research staff at the Jordan Institute for Families will use the extracts to build and maintain a set of longitudinal datasets to analyze outcomes. From these datasets, researchers will produce a report of five measures that NC-CIP is required to report to the federal government: - Time to First Permanency Hearing - Time to all Subsequent Permanency Hearings - Time to Permanent Placement - Time to Termination of Parental Rights Petition - Time to Termination of Parental Rights After production of the five required measures, researchers will develop, in consultation with NC-CIP, a trends report for these measures to assess changes over time and assist in developing targets or projected levels of improvement in these measures. The tasks under the next section, C (Scope of Contract), provide a more detailed description of the work to be performed.
