This study used administrative child welfare data from California to examine the relationship of the characteristics of children and their families to whether children were placed in kinship foster care or in some other form of child welfare placement. It was found that many characteristics of children and their families—such as children's age and race, children's health status, type of family from which children were removed, AFDC eligibility of the family from which children were removed, and the reason for which the children were removed from their caregivers—are related to the type of foster care setting in which children were placed.
