CDN Presentation: Constructing Households and Families with Linked Administrative Records
On January 25th, 2021, the CDN had the opportunity to present its work to identify strategies for constructing households and families with linked administrative records at an Actionable Intelligence for Social Policy (AISP) Family-Specific Working Session. Regan Foust, Executive Director and Research Scientist for the Children’s Data Network, and Stephanie Cuccaro-Alamin, Research Associate for the Children’s Data Network and Research Associate at the California Child Welfare Indicators Project (CCWIP) at UC Berkeley, lead the discussion, presenting results from their recently published paper, Strategies for Constructing Household and Family Units with Linked Administrative Records (https://doi.org/10.1016/j.childyouth.2020.105706). In addition, they described California Health and Human Services (CHHS) efforts to integrate client records across programs / departments and identify concrete strategies that could be used to construct households and family units in the data generated from these periodic record reconciliations, specifically.
