At the request of the Trends Analysis Committee and with approval from the State Quality Improvement Committee, this report combines what used to be the Trends Data report for the exit stipulation, the Agency Demographic Data quarterly report, the Employee Data quarterly report, and the Agency Performance & Outcomes quarterly report. It has reduced redundancy in measures and is reformatted by service types (e.g., all CPS information is together, all In-Home Services information is together, etc.).
