At the Children’s Data Network, our team consists of people who enjoy work as both “poets and plumbers”. We possess a shared vision of advancing the science of children’s services through a more rigorous use of existing data. Yet vision requires action and implementation. We are committed to the development of the relationships and infrastructure needed to realize the potential of data to improve outcomes for children.

Discovery consists of seeing what everyone has seen and thinking what no one has thought.
The Children’s Data Network is a university, agency, and community collaborative focused on the integration and application of data to inform programs and policies for children and their families. The Children’s Data Network receives essential infrastructure funding from First 5 LA and the Conrad N. Hilton Foundation, with additional project support from other philanthropic and public partners. The project is housed at USC’s School of Social Work and developed in collaboration with the California Child Welfare Indicators Project.
