Harnessing the scientific potential of linked, administrative data to inform children’s programs and policies.

Making Smarter Use of Data Together

The Children’s Data Network is a data and research collaborative focused on the linkage and analysis of administrative records. In partnership with public agencies, philanthropic funders, and community stakeholders, we seek to generate knowledge and advance evidence-rich policies that will improve the health, safety, and well-being of our children.
Each person in the world creates a Book of Life. This Book starts with birth and ends with death. Its pages are made up of the records of the principal events in life. Record linkage is the name given to the process of assembling the pages of this Book...

CDN’s Dr. Jacquelyn McCroskey Appointed to Assembly Speaker’s Blue Ribbon Commission on Early Childhood Education

Recently, Assembly Speaker Anthony Rendon (D-Paramount) launched the Speaker’s Blue Ribbon Commission on Early Childhood Education, a policy-driven body tasked with identifying ways to create a more sustainable early learning system and update an outdated funding plan that has been unable to meet the demand for child care access in California. The commission will enable the Assembly to find ways to improve the state’s early learning system, and realize those improvements through policy and budget decisions.

Our very own Dr. Jacquelyn McCroskey, John Milner Professor of Child Welfare and Co-Director of the Children’s Data Network at the University of Southern California’s Suzanne Dworak-Peck School of Social Work, has been appointed to serve on the commission. She will collaborate alongside multiple Assemblymembers and eight other community members to develop solutions to improve results for California’s youngest learners and their families.

Congratulations Jacquelyn!
