Data Source

Kentucky Cabinet for Health & Family Services, Dept. for Community Based Services


The data include some youth older than 18, as youth may elect to stay in care after turning 18. The number of children exiting foster care and placed in the custody of relatives is underestimated because some children are directly placed by the courts in the custody of relatives without entering the foster care system. Data reflect county of case manager location.

S= Number is suppressed for fewer than 6 children.
