Yette, Rebecca; And Others
The Washington State Department of Social Health Services (DSHS) is an umbrella human service agency offering various services and grants to individuals and families. This report describes clients who were served by the DSHS from July, 1991 through June, 1992. It provides data on the following: (1) how many unduplicated clients from each community used each division and each program; (2) how many total dollars were spent directly serving clients from each community; (3) what percentage of the total community population received service; (4) what was each community's relative use rate within the state; (5) how much money was spent on the average client in a given community; (6) what percentage of a given community's total clients were in each client group; and (7) what percentage of the total dollars spent in a given community were spent on each client group. For each city or place studied, both the number of clients in various DSHS programs and the direct service dollars spent on those clients are reported. In addition, the clients and dollars are reported by age groupings and by ethnicity. Data on two types of communities are included: cities and Census Designated Places (CDP's). Cities are legally incorporated local governments. CDP's comprise densely settled concentrations of population that are identifiable by name, but are not legally incorporated places. Contains a glossary, as well as six appendices relating to the study. (TS)
