Question 1.  
In terms of reporting adoptions it is not clear whether States are required to submit data on adoptions for which an agency may have limited involvement, such as only performing a home study. The agency's data on these adoptions may be very limited. Does the Department want information on such adoptions submitted to AFCARS?

Question 2.  
What procedures should a child welfare worker follow in order to most effectively obtain accurate information on the racial and ethnic status of children and adults?
