State and Local Area Integrated Telephone Survey

National Survey of Children in Nonparental Care

national

This survey provides nationally representative estimates on the characteristics, living arrangements, and service accessibility of noninstitutionalized children who were living apart from their parents (in foster care, grandparent care or other nonparental care) and who were aged 0 to 16 years in 2011-2012. Data on the well-being of the children and of their caregivers are also available.  The children’s nonparental care status was identified in a previous SLAITS survey, the 2011-2012 National Survey of Children’s Health.
