Understanding Adoption Subsidies: An Analysis of AFCARS Data. Trends


Table A-5 presents the federal plus state subsidy receipt trends from 1999 to 2001 for each state. The total row at the bottom of the table shows that there is little change on a national level in federal subsidy receipt in the last 3 years for which data are available (1999 to 2001). At the state level, the table shows considerable instability, with substantial increases and decreases between years. Examining the data for just the 10 largest states, we observe that four of them showed at least a 20 percent change in the proportion of children receiving federal subsidies from 1999 to 2001. Three of these states reported an increase in the percent of children receiving subsidies (California, Florida, and Washington); one reported a decrease (Texas).
