Jan 2014 |

This brief report describes risk factors and outcomes for the same cohort of youth in placement, limited to the first birth to female parents. In addition to the cohort of female youth in foster care who gave birth, we describe characteristics for three comparison groups of young women who gave birth in 2008-2009. The years 2008-2009 were selected for births for the comparison groups because nearly half (48%) the births to foster care youth in this study occurred in 2008-2009.
