Notes on Data Source

These reports examine the point in time placement status of two overlapping groups of children: Indian Child Welfare Act eligible children [4E(1)] and children with primary or secondary (multi) ethnicity of American Indian [4E(2)]. Placement status takes placement type, child relationship to substitute care provider, and substitute care provider ethnicity into account. The resulting placement status categories are placements with relatives; with non-relative, Indian substitute care providers; with non-relative, non-Indian substitute care providers; with non-relative substitute care providers with ethnicity missing in CWS/CMS; in group homes (ethnicity cannot be determined); and in other placements.

Children with a primary ethnicity of American Indian often have other reported secondary ethnicities. Children with a secondary ethnicity of American Indian always have another reported primary ethnicity and may have other reported secondary ethnicities. The two groups are described as overlapping because many children with a primary or secondary ethnicity of American Indian are not eligible for the Indian Child Welfare Act. Not all children eligible for the Indian Child Welfare Act are reported to have a primary or secondary ethnicity of American Indian.

Note: Cells containing a period (".") represent a value of zero. In cells representing quotients, a period may also indicate the indeterminate form 0/0.

These reports may also be run with filters in place to restrict the data to various subgroups of other variables (e.g., Black subgroup of the Ethnicity variable, < 1 year old subgroup of the Age variable, etc.). Please see the links below for details:
