Wisconsin Department of Children and Families

Protecting Children, Strengthening Families, Building Communities



KidStat is a performance management approach led by the Bureau of Performance Management for the Department. KidStat promotes data-driven discussion between DCF leadership and program staff, in an effort to determine how to improve or maximize performance on key performance indicators. KidStat is not simply another layer of reporting; rather it is designed to manage efforts to measure, evaluate and achieve results.
