Overview

In August 2003, the U.S. Census Bureau released a Special Report drawn from the decennial census relating to characteristics of adopted children, stepchildren, and their families. These first-ever data have been compiled, presented, and footnoted in "Adopted Children and Stepchildren: 2000," authored by Rose M Kreider.

The original document has been released in .pdf format, and is both easy to read and to print. However, for researchers and others for whom the .pdf format may be difficult to view and/or use, this html version may prove useful.

The following is a Table of Contents directory to an html transcription of the original document, and any errors in transcription are mine. Links to tables and figures from the report text will open in a new window for easy viewing.
