Earlier, we reported the ministry of children and family development expects a decrease in the average number of children in care. This, despite the economic downturn. But perhaps the ministry has good reason to forecast such a decrease. After all, in December 2008, the ministry had just 8,960 children in care as part of a downward trend. The following is a complete copy of those numbers since December 2001.

Number of children in care

December 2001 - 10,229
December 2002 - 9,568
December 2003 - 9,189
December 2004 - 9,115
December 2005 - 9,140
December 2006 - 9,246
December 2007 - 9,165
December 2008 - 8,960
