The term 'foster child' generally refers to a child being raised by an unrelated family in the absence of any natural, adoptive or step parent(s).
In practice, a person is coded to foster child if the response 'foster' is given for that person, regardless of the individual's dependency status.
The variables Child Type (CTPP) and Relationship in Household (RLHP) have foster child categories.
See also Child, Relationship in Household (RLHP).
