The National Youth in Transition Database (NYTD)

CHSR is collaborating with the New York State Office of Children and Family Services to research youth transitioning out of foster care.

The National Youth in Transition Database (NYTD) collects information on youth in foster care and their outcomes as they transition out of foster care. The survey asks about employment, education, financial resources, and family relationships. The New York State Office of Children and Family Services (OCFS) is contracting with CHSR to track and survey these youth at ages 17, 19, and 21.

The project requires close communication with regional and agency liaisons and caseworkers to obtain youth data, ongoing contact with youth to maintain current contact information, the administration of telephone, web, and paper surveys, and regular submission of data reports to OCFS.
