This paper presents a study of the differences in the probability of children and young people being placed in care for children from resource-rich and resource-poor families. It is shown how various social factors, such as divorce, criminality and health issues, have differing degrees of significance for the probability of children being placed in care, all depending on the resources that the family has in the first place.
