 Summary Analysis

  • The ratio of active cases to active social worker positions has steadily declined from about 1:40 in FY97 to 1:18 in FY09
  • The average active caseload for all social workers was 1:14 in July 2009, based on information from the new FamLink system.
  • CAMIS and FamLink caseloads should not be compared.  FamLink caseload ratio calculations differ from the traditional CAMIS caseload ratios.
    • The CAMIS ratio was based on counts of staff who were paid during a month period compared to active worker assignments open during a month period.
    • The FamLink ratio is based on counts of all workers with at least one primary case assignment and worker assignments on the first day of the month.
  • FamLink cases and assignments are being reviewed and assessed for accurary. A plan will be developed to correct duplication and other issues found after the assessment is complete.
