Sammanfattning

Abstract We used data from several national registers for ten entire birth cohorts (n>1 million) to examine the representation of first generation immigrant children among first time entries into out-of-home care (foster/residential care) at ages 7-12 and 13-17. Logistic regression models were used to just results for socioeconomic background factors. Immigrant children were categorized in six groups after birth country/continent. Compared to Swedish born peers, immigrant children from non-European countries had two-threefold sex and birth year adjusted odds for being placed in care for the first time at ages 7-12. After adjustments for five socioeconomic background variables, none of these overrisks remained. Instead there was a tendency towards immigrant background being associated with reduced risks, statistically significant for immigrant children born in non-Nordic European countries. Immigrant children had between two- and sixfold age and birth year adjusted odds for entering care for the first time during adolescence. After adjusting the results for socioeconomic background, only immigrant children born in Sub-Saharan Africa or in Asia outside the Middle East had significant overrisks for care entries at ages 13-17 (OR=1.5).
