The quality of a child protection system depends not only on the budget allocated but how that budget is spent. See how South Australia performs compared to other states in what we spend and how we spend it in our handy analysis of the child protection data from the Productivity Commission Report on Government Services 2016.
Is there any breakdown of the expenditure costs for child protection anywhere. eg h what is the figure of $620000 per child made up of?
We draw our figures from the latest Report on Government Services by the Productivity Commission. You can easily find it by Google and the way it is counted is there. Also our report on expenditure on child protection in SA https://www.gcyp.sa.gov.au/2016/04/expenditure-on-child-protection-in-south-australia-2014-15/ has some definitions at the back.
