Definitions: The number and percent of children who entered foster care placement for the first time during the reporting period by race or Hispanic origin. The “Non-Hispanic Other” category includes children who were not Hispanic, not White, not Black or African American, and whose record did not indicate more than one category. This category includes a small number of American Indian or Alaska Native, Asian, Native Hawaiian or Other Pacific Islander, and Unable to Determine.
Race or Hispanic origin are mutually exclusive categories. Children who are of Hispanic origin are not classified as any other race.
