Description: The National Youth in Transition Database (NYTD) will collect case-level information on youth in care including the services paid for or provided by the State agencies that administer the Chafee Foster Care Independence Program (CFCIP), as well as the outcome information on youth who are in or who have aged out of foster care.
Population: Youth ages 17-21.
Periodicity: Baseline data collection for the first cohort of 17 year-old youths in foster care began in 2010. States will track these youth as they age and conduct a new outcome survey on or around the youth's 19th birthday; and again on or around the youth's 21st birthday. All States will collect and report outcome information on a new baseline population cohort every three years.
