In March 2014, OCI released its Annual Report on Intercountry Adoption, which showed a total of 7,094 incoming adoptions and 84 outgoing adoptions during fiscal year 2013. The incoming adoption figure represents another decline compared to the FY 2012 number of 8,668 and particularly the from the peak number of 22,991 in FY 2014. The five most common countries of origin in FY 2013 were China (2306 children), Ethiopia (993), Ukraine (438), Haiti (388) and the Congo (313).
In April 2014, OCI posted the child abduction case statistics for the 2013 calendar year and the annual Hague Compliance Report mandated by Congress.
