Children exiting foster care in Kentucky

Change Indicator

Children exiting foster care

Data Provided By
Note: Non-consecutive years appear adjacent in the trend line
because one or more years have been deselected.

Definitions: Number of children who exited foster care to any type of placement.

Data Source: Kentucky Cabinet for Health & Family Services, Dept. for Community Based Services

Footnotes: The data include some youth older than 18, as youth may elect to stay in care after turning 18. The number of children exiting foster care and placed in the custody of relatives is underestimated because some children are directly placed by the courts in the custody of relatives without entering the foster care system.

S= Number is suppressed for fewer than 6 children.
