After looking around the Internet for statistics regarding aging out of foster care, I realized that it is very difficult! You find statistics that vary widely from site to site, and many sites do not cite the sources where they are getting their numbers. I realized that it would be very helpful if someone would compile the key statistics that people reference so that others can find them more easily…so I have started that work.  Below is the initial list. It is not a definitive list, but includes sources that a lot of people do reference. We will continue to add to it over the years. For now, I will add these numbers to the AOI page titled “What is Aging Out?” and will update them as statistics are added.
