The Children’s Data Network (CDN): Harnessing the Scientific Potential of Linked, Administrative Data to Inform Children’s Programs and Policies
is an open-source and peer-reviewed article appearing in the newest issue of the International Journal of Population Data Science, Work Designed to Influence Policy and Practice
. The article and the associated blog
summarizes the CDN’s history, approach, accomplishments, and impact over the past eight years. It is our sincere hope that our experience—and lessons learned—can advance and inform work in other fields and jurisdictions.
We are incredibly proud to have our work featured in this way and have been humbled by the response it has received. But, more than anything, we are intensely grateful for the partnership, guidance, and support of our data, research, and funding partners that has made this impactful and important work possible.
