There has been very rapid growth in Chinese adoptions into the U.S. Using immigrant visa numbers reported by the State Department as a tally, the numbers are shown below, note that this breakdown is by U.S. government fiscal year, ie, from September to September. Since 1985, there have been a total of 67,842 adoptions from China to the US.
This graph shows where in China adoptions are taking place. This is from the New York FCC chapter. The two sets of bars show data from 1995 and 1996.
This map presents the information from the New York FCC database for 1995, but superposed on a map of China, so that you can see the geographical distribution of adoptions in China.
