The Government is urging more would-be adoptive parents to use their interactive online adoption maps to find suitable children to raise.
Children and Families Minister Edward Timpson said "promising progress" was being made towards improving adoption rates but significantly more remained to be done.
Information like the number of children waiting for adoption, approval rates and the time taken to complete the process are on the map.
Department for Education figures show a 34% increase in adopters and adoptions up by a record 15% following the implementation of reforms.
Prime Minister David Cameron has said the issue is a personal priority.
