Supplementary notes

¹ Until 2016: taken into care according to §42 SGB VIII; from 2017: preliminary and regular care based on §§42 SGB VIII and 42a SGB VIII (may apply to unaccompanied children and adolescents arriving in Germany).

² According to the source, due to the workload in youth welfare offices because of the large number of unaccompanied minors arriving in the country, figures for 2015 and 2015 have limited validity.

³ According to the source, from 2017 onwards double counts of children and adolescents are possible, if these have first been taking into preliminary care based on § 42a SGB VIII and subsequently once again taken into care on a regular basis following § 42 Absatz 1 Number 3 SGB VIII (may apply to unaccompanied children and adolescents arriving in Germany). The source notes that time period comparisons are therefore possible only in a limited capacity.
