National framework for protecting Australia's children indicators

National framework for protecting Australia's children indicators

8 September 2020

This resource provides updated child protection indicators and other measures that focus on the safety and wellbeing of Australia’s children.

This resource has been published by the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare (AIHW).

As of 2019, all states and territories have adopted a nationally consistent definition of out-of-home care. This change affects the latest year of data for the following indicators: out-of-home care, placement stability, placement of Indigenous children, safety, stability during the year, and kinship placement.  

This resource provides an update to the online data visualisations for indicators under the National Framework for Protecting Australia’s Children and the National Standards for Out-of-Home Care.
