June 2013 Metrics

Overview:
  • Orange County social service usage increased in recent years, reaching levels prior to the large drop experienced in the summer of 2009.
  • Healthy Families Enrollment in Orange County was fairly constant through the beginning of 2012, with a downward trend over the rest of the year. Thus far, 2013 has seen radically low levels of enrollment, comparable to rates during the state budget crisis of August-September 2009.
  • 2012 has showed a continued increase in applications for food stamp programs and remains high relative to previous years. December 2012 showed a sharp decrease in applications relative to the rest of the year, but January 2013 brought application levels back to consistency. February 2013 has shown a month-over-month decline in enrollments, but March and April 2013 both have shown gradual increases, consistent with the previous year’s trend.
  • CalWORKS enrollments are in a decreasing trend overall and experienced the lowest enrollment rate in February 2012. January 2013 saw a month-over-month increase over December 2012’s enrollment rates, but enrollments drastically fell for February 2013. April 2013 has shown some recovery, but is still at only 60% of the previous year’s enrollment rate.
  • Calls to the 211 Service Line have remained relatively stable since 2008, with typical peaks occurring from October to December each year. October 2012 saw a drastic increase in requests, surpassing 15,000 monthly requests and continuing to climb throughout the end of 2012. May 2013 recorded 24,026 requests, more than double the volume of requests received in the previous year, and a five-year high for requests.
