General description
From 2016-17, looked after children data is now collected during the year through the Looked after children Census. This has replaced the existing datasets Looked After Children (SSDA903), Adoptions of looked after children (AD1), Educational qualifications of care leavers (OC1) and Care leavers on their 19th birthday (OC3).

From 2016-17 onwards, outcomes for care leavers on their 19th birthday are no longer captured.

This table presents figures about local authority care leavers. Children looked after include those on care orders and other children provided with accommodation by their local authority.


Data collection and calculation
Anonymised individual child level data is extracted from local authority administrative systems and returned electronically to the Data Collection team within the Welsh Government using an online secure data transfer system called 'AFON'. The AFON system applies an extensive series of validation checks to ensure that the information provided uses the correct codes and is internally consistent.
