The National Youth in Transition Database

The National Youth in Transition Database (NYTD) is a new Federal reporting system created to track the independent living services States provide to youth and to collect outcomes information from youth transitioning out of foster care that may be used to assess States' performance in operating their independent living programs.  With the first year of data collection completed, the Children’s Bureau, within the Administration for Children and Families (ACF) and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), is pleased to release the NYTD brief highlighting national data from Federal Fiscal Year (FFY) 2011 (October 1, 2010 to September 30, 2011), including:

  • Information on over 98,000 youth who received independent living services paid for or provided by State agencies that administer the John H. Chafee Foster Care Independence Program (CFCIP); and
  • Information on baseline outcomes reported by over 17,000 youth in foster care at age 17 in six areas:
    • Financial self-sufficiency
    • Educational attainment
    • Connection with adults
    • Homelessness
    • High-risk behaviors
