because one or more years have been deselected.
number - the number of children entering foster care during a calendar year
rate - the number of children entering foster care during a calendar year per 1,000 children ages 0-17
Rates are based on Census Bureau estimates of the population of children ages 0 to 17 in each parish, as of July 1st of the respective year.
Agenda for Children's analysis of data provided by the Louisiana Department of Children and Family Services, by special request.
Population data - Puzzanchera, C., Sladky, A. and Kang, W. (2020). "Easy Access to Juvenile Populations: 1990-2019." Online. Available: https://www.ojjdp.gov/ojstatbb/ezapop/
Data is reported according to the location of court of entry into foster care.
Note that the parish location data was missing for a small number of children each year, and a very small (<5) number of children in foster care have cases that originated in other states. As a result, the statewide total is larger than the sum of data from all parishes.
Data is unduplicated, so if a child entered and exited foster care multiple times over the course of the year, he/she would only be counted once.
