  1. 'Accommodated with parents or relatives' is likely to be an under count - if a young person's former foster carer is a relative they should be recorded as accommodated with their former foster carer.
  2. National and regional numbers have been rounded to the nearest 10. Percentages rounded to the nearest whole number. Figures exclude young people who were looked after under an agreed series of short term placements, those who have died since leaving care, those who have returned home to parents or someone with parental responsibility for a continuous period of at least 6 months and those whose care was transferred to another local authority.
