At the Children’s Data Network, we use integrated administrative data to develop applied and actionable research projects, support cost-effective program evaluations, and attend to policy-relevant questions from partner agencies and other stakeholders. The project pages below provide an overview of some of our initial efforts which have focused on the health and safety of children in Los Angeles County and throughout California.
Knowing is not enough; we must apply. Willing is not enough; we must do.
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.
