Children’s Bureau-Funded Research – The Children’s Bureau also funds research in collaboration with other organizations.
For example:
  • A Report to Congress on Barriers and Success Factors in Adoptions From Foster Care: Perspectives of Families and Staff Supported by the Adoption Opportunities Program identifies child, family, and agency factors that promote or act as barriers to successful adoptions from foster care.
  • Child Welfare Systems’ Responses to Children of Color seeks to identify programs and practices that address perceived racial or cultural disparities within the child welfare system and to pilot studies of policies and practices related to services for children of color in the system.
  • Fourth National Incidence Study of Child Abuse and Neglect (NIS-4) provides updated estimates of the incidence of child abuse and neglect in the United States, measures changes in these estimates from earlier studies, and examines the incidence of child maltreatment in relation to various subgroups defined by the child’s characteristics and family or household characteristics.
  • LONGSCAN reports provide information about the Longitudinal Study of Child Abuse and Neglect, sample demographics, measures utilized, and more.
  • National Survey of Child and Adolescent Well-Being (NSCAW) seeks to learn what happens to the children and families who come in contact with the child welfare system.
