Dubious Adoption Data

Students analyze a graph from the New York City Administration for Children's Services that shows a significant increase in New York City adoptions after ACS was founded. They determine whether the graph supports ACS' claims and whether the graph itself is misleading. Afterward, they compare ACS' graph to the raw data on adoptions during the same period.
