Long-term benefits of providing transitional services to youth aging-out of the child welfare system: Evidence from a cohort of young people who use drugs in Vancouver, Canada.

Exposure to out-of-home care in childhood and adult all-cause mortality: a cohort study
TLDR
Children in OHC constitute a high-risk group for subsequent mortality, and interventions may need to monitor not only health aspects but also to target the cognitive and social development of these children. Expand
Does poor school performance cause later psychosocial problems among children in foster care? Evidence from national longitudinal registry data.
TLDR
Promotion of school performance has a negative impact on later psychosocial problems net of observed background attributes and potential selection on unobservables, suggesting that the estimated effects allow for causal interpretations. Expand
