Do you know this?

Now we have a new legislation called "Juvenile & Justice Act, 2015" replacing the JJ Act of 2000. In this new act, adoption has assumed a significant importance with an exclusive chapter. Subscribe and follow this blog for more information in the days to come.

Adoption rate and more

Do you know what is adoption rate? Which country has the highest/ lowest adoption rate in the world?

I learnt at the CARA conference in 2007 from a British presenter that adoption rate refers to "One adoption per one thousand live birth in a geographical location (a country for example)".

Highest adoption rate is currently seen in ETHIOPIA.

Guess which country has the lowest adoption rate in the world? INDIA.

I guess this is not going to get better any time soon as we are nowhere close to controlling our population explosion.
