The placement of ex-nuptial children, 1958–1980 (2 o 2)

Move the mouse over the lines on the graph to see data on the placement of ex-nuptial children. Click on a placement destination in the key to remove that line from the graph; click on the selection again to restore it.

This graph shows where children born outside of marriage ended up. The most significant trends were the decrease in adoptions by strangers from the late 1960s, and the corresponding increase in children who remained with their single mother or their mother and her de-facto partner (who may or may not have been the child's father).
