ABOUT THIS DATASET

Count taken on September 30th of each year.

Data from both the regular and revised AFCARS file submissions received by August 10, 2018 are included in this report. Missing data are exlcuded from each table. Therefore, the totals within each distribution may not equal the total provided for that subpopulation (e.g. number in care on September30th may not match the sum across ages for that group).
