Where are America’s foster children? Our updated database

Datarevelations has updated NCCPR'S interactive database on foster care placements.  

How well does your state do in providing the least harmful form of foster care, care with relatives?  How well does your state do at avoiding the worst form of care, group homes and institutions? Data are available for every state on the proportion of children in kinship foster care and congregate care in 2010 and 2009.  The data are available by state and in rank order.

You also can compare the change in the total number of foster children in every state.
