The prevalence of youth with disabilities among older youth in out-of-home placement: an analysis of state administrative data



The prevalence of youth with disabilities among older youth in out-of-home placement: an analysis of state administrative data



Child Welfare 91(4): 61-84



Children with disabilities are overrepresented in in out-of-home-placement; however, there is little research available on the prevalence of older youth with disabilities in foster care. Using state administrative data, this exploratory study used descriptive statistics and logistic regression analysis to examine the prevalence and demographic make up of older youth with disabilities in one state's out-of-home placement system. Findings indicate that in one state, youth with disabilities are overrepresented in out-of-home placement and differ in their racial and ethnic identities from youth with disabilities who are not in foster care in the same state. Implications for research, policy, and practice are discussed.
