Preliminary 2015 AFCARS Data Released by DHHS

Just a reminder that this is the Adoption and Foster Care Analysis and Reporting System data, which is information sent from the state to the federal government about kids in foster care. There is still a pending rule change that would add ICWA-specific data elements to these reports, but it has not yet been promulgated. How Native children are identified by state actors for this report varies dramatically by state (and county), but it is the best data we have at this time.
