Resumen

In order to assess the consistency of correlates of multiple placements, secondary data from the Adoption and Foster Care Analysis and Reporting System (AFCARS) were examined for five states. The relationships between multiple placements and age, disability, and maltreatment type were consistent across the states studied. On the other hand, gender, race, and foster care system size were inconsistently related to multiple placements in terms of direction and/or strength. These results point to the importance of considering not only the strength and direction of these relationships, but also the enduring or shifting nature of these relationships across environments.
