March 2018Vol. 19, No. 2Introduction to the National Youth in Transition Database Video Series

A new six-part video series covering the National Youth in Transition Database (NYTD) and the NYTD Review, a federal review conducted by the Children's Bureau, is now available. NYTD collects information on youth in foster care and their outcomes when they age out, while the NYTD Review focuses on evaluating how states collect and report that data. These short, animated videos break NYTD and the review system down into easily understandable concepts. By taking the time to define jargon and explain exactly what is collected and the processes involved, these videos can be a valuable resource to educate youth, families, and others about NYTD.

This video series includes the following sections:

  • "Introduction to NYTD, Part 1: History and Implementation"
  • "Introduction to NYTD, Part 2: Data Collection and Reporting"
  • "Introduction to the NYTD Review"
  • "System Demonstration and Survey Methodology Review"
  • "Case Record Review"
  • "Stakeholder Interviews"

The video series, developed and produced by the Administration for Children and Families, is available at
