|Guide for use:|
CODE 1 Placements under adoption quotas
Adoptions where the placement occurred under a program quota system. Quota systems refer to systems put in place by countries of origin which limit the number of adoption applications which can be sent by Australia to that country in any given year. This can create a waiting period before an application can be sent overseas. Quotas are usually limited to those applicants seeking to adopt younger children without special needs (or as defined by the practice of that particular country).
CODE 2 Placements not under adoption quotas
Adoptions where the placement did not occur under a program quota system.
CODE 3 Placements through alternative referral programs
Adoptions where the placement occurred through an alternative referral program. Referral programs include programs where a profile of an adopted person is sent to Australian Central Authorities to help identify suitable prospective adoptive parents. This category includes the China Online Special Needs program.
