Synopsis: This study followed 14,580 children and youth who were referred to psychiatric crisis screening in 2006 in Illinois and who have no prior history of out-of-home placement in order to examine the extent and predictors of out-of-home placement. A total of 449 (3.1%) children and youth of the sample subsequently entered out-of-home care. These children accounted for approximately 20% of those who first entered out-of-home care. Implications of the findings were discussed.
