Adoptions in England and Wales, 2012

Author:

Publisher:

Pagination:

This bulletin presents annual statistics on adoptions which took place following court orders in England and Wales in 2012. Figures on adoption orders apply to adoptions by relatives and stepparents as well as adoptions from care. Adoption statistics are analysed by sex, age and marital status of the biological parents. In 2012, the number of adoptions in England and Wales was 5,206, an increase and contains the particulars of every adoption order made by a court in England and Wales. Children born and adopted overseas can be registered in the ACR, providing the adoptive parent(s) are habitually resident in England or Wales at the time of the adoption. Such adoptions are not included in the Office for National Statistics (ONS) adoption statistics. This is the first time that ONS has published annual adoption statistics for England and Wales. However, since 2013, the Ministry of Justice (MoJ) has published adoption statistics in Court Statistics (Quarterly). These statistics are more timely and contain more detailed information than ONS can provide. (Edited publisher abstract)
