The percentage of children looked after at 31st March with three or more placements during the year.

The percentage of looked after children who ceased to be looked after during the year who were adopted.

The percentage of children who wait less than 20 months* between entering care and moving in with their adoptive family, shown as a 3-year average *n.b. In 2010/13 the Government lowered the threshold to less than 20 months from 21 months in previous years and so the trend data needs to be viewed in this light.
