    • Abstract:
      The article presents information on a study that explores associations between the type of placement in out-of-home care and selects outcomes in adulthood. The study findings highlight whether the type of out-of-home care setting is associated with adult functioning indicators, including education, employment, and physical and mental health status. The study suggests that kinship care providers have a different demographic profile than other foster parents. It is estimated that over 500,000 children will be in out-of-home care in 1996, almost double the number reported in 1985.
