Are the variations in the proportion of children in the care of different local authorities due to different levels of social and economic need? Comparisons between the two measures, linked with the fall in the number of children in care during the 1980s, a time of economic depression, suggests that this relationship is only a partial explanation.

This paper examines changing trends in child care statistics and points to the importance of variations in resource provision and the child care policies and practices of individual social services departments in influencing the number of children received into or remaining in their care.
