This paper summarizes a meta-analysis of the existing literature on the turnover intentions of public child welfare caseworkers in the United States. Turnover intention was reflected by various measures of either intention to leave or intention to remain employed. Twenty-two studies were included in the final analyses involving the assessment of the effect sizes for 36 predictors, classified into demographic, work-related, work environment, and attitudes/perceptions categories.
