Local authority level data for children looked after at 31 March by numbers the LA places outside their LA and numbers other LAs place within the LA.

Footnotes:

1. National and regional numbers have been rounded to the nearest 10. Percentages rounded to the nearest whole number. See the methodology document for further information. Figures exclude children looked after under a series of short-term placements. Historical data may differ from older publications which is mainly due to amendments made by local authorities after the previous publication.

2. Net gain is the difference between the number of children who are the responsibility of other LAs placed within this LA boundary and the number of children who are the responsibility of this LA placed outside the LA boundary.

3. For some local authorities, such as Kent, the figures may be impacted by significant numbers of unaccompanied asylum seeking children.
