KIDS COUNT Data Snapshot on Foster Care Placement

Annie E. Casey Foundation

2011

This Data Snapshot highlights newly available data on the KIDS COUNT Data Center marking the progress made by many states to increase the rates of children in foster care who are living with families and decrease the rates of those placed in institutions or group homes. The data also show that the type of foster care placement varies depending on the age of the child as well as the state of residence.
