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…
Halbert L. Dunn, 1946

A Data and Research Collaborative

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.

Now Available: Joint Guidance Regarding Information Sharing to Identify Common Clients Between Social Service Agencies

The California Health and Human Services Agency (CHHS) and the Bureau of Children’s Justice within the California Department of Justice (DOJ) have jointly clarified the conditions under which public social services agencies are permitted to use data matching to share client information. This guidance, developed in partnership with state and local jurisdictions, including the Los Angeles County Office of Child Protection (OCP), is meant to facilitate the secure integration of client records with the aim of reducing the inefficient use of resources, increasing client satisfaction, and improving program effectiveness. Aside from the potential departmental, client, and population-wide benefits of such initiatives, we were proud to have the protocols to which the CDN has long adhered regarded as standard operating procedures for the secure linkage and analysis of cross-program (and cross-agency) records.
