Free text The authors present descriptive statistics on how the current California child welfare system operates, suggestions for child welfare policy, and new questions for future exploration. The authors generalize from the California data on the assumption that the state’s child welfare system is representative of others throughout the United States. Chapters examines the characteristics of abused and neglected children and the dispositions of their cases; factors associated with how long it takes to achieve family reunification, the odds of a child being placed into group care, and whether a child is adopted out of foster care; and characteristics of specialized foster care, kin foster placements, group care settings and out-of-home care.
