About the Course:
The study used as the basis of this course was designed to extend current understanding of foster parent retention by producing unbiased estimates of length of service and examining factors associated with licensure, provision of care, and length of service. The study used administrative data, applying data management and analytic methods that have been used to describe the length of stay for children in foster care. Principal research issues include: how the characteristics of foster parents have changed over time; how variations in activity levels can be described, and what foster parent characteristics are associated with varying activity levels.
This course is based on the reading-based online article, Understanding Foster Parenting: Using Administrative Data to Explore Retention created by Gibbs, Deborah
