Using statewide data from the Minn-LInK Project and administrative data from one treatment foster care (TFC) agency in Minnesota, a number of cross-system child outcomes were explored. This study was intended to begin to form a broader picture of the status of TFC children and to help fill gaps in the TFC literature by linking TFC program records across other systems. This exploration led to concrete recommendations for TFC agency data systems and data collection practices.
