The data set is broken down by: * fiscal year * ministry region * children's aid society * total number of new referrals * number of referrals that are carried over from the previous fiscal year * referrals made prior to court involvement * referrals made post court involvement * referrals declined *[ADR]: alternative dispute resolution
