    • Abstract:
      This study uses nationally representative survey data to describe differences in characteristics, adverse family experiences and child well-being among children in kinship care with varying levels of involvement with the child welfare system. Well-being is examined in the domains of physical and mental health, education and permanency. Comparisons provide insight on kinship care arrangements inside and outside the child welfare system, as well as the variability among nonfoster kinship care arrangements. [ABSTRACT FROM AUTHOR]
