Subject:Re: recent figures on race and child maltreatment, foster care, removal, etc

Got to the Children's Bureau website and look for the AFCARS reports. On Wed, Jul 12, 2017 at 12:00 PM, Lisa Fontes > wrote: Can anyone point me to recent figures on race/ethnicity in foster care, out-of-home placement, disproportionality, etc? I am working on a new edition of Child Abuse and Culture and I want to make sure I have the latest figures. I'm thinking especially about the U.S. but am also interested in other countries' experiences around this topic. Please message me privately at: LFontes@uww.umass.edu about this or any other recent research that you think I should include. Links or PDFs are especially appreciated. Of course, I am doing my own searches but with the proliferation of work these days, I want to explore every channel to find what I need.
