Guide for use:Help on this term

For local and intercountry adoptions, data are collected on children who were placed with their adoptive families during the reporting period, regardless of the status of their adoption order. 'Placed with their adoptive families' refers to when the child enters Australia for intercountry adoptions, or when the child is taken into the care of the prospective adoptive parent(s).
