However, Hispanic children appear at a higher risk for non-kinship care placement. This book addresses such problems and policies on kinship care and barriers to implementation of child welfare policies with immigrant and mixed-status children. Child welfare is also closely related to parent-child connections. Thus, the parent-child connection is discussed as well as the authoritative/supportive parenting styles of the mother and father, which seem to protect adolescents against substance abuse. The rural-urban malnutrition rates of children living in up to 93 countries were examined and discussed. Political stability and how it affects the rural-urban malnutrition ratio, especially in democratic systems were also looked at. In addition, the human welfare system in North Korea was examined, for example, by looking at the heights of their children. Stature can be assumed to appropriately indicate child welfare issues in many situations. Other such advantages and disadvantage indicators are discussed in this book. Finally, the organisation of the delivery of social services to waiting children and the prospective adoptive families, which influence adoption creation are reviewed. Cross-section time-series estimates are supplemented with a new augmented fixed effects procedure to demonstrate that the use of contracts with private agencies bolsters adoption creation.
