Four kids looking at a book

An important aspect of the child support program’s mission is to integrate research into effective child support policies.  Our office collaborates with grantees and many public and private partners to develop evidence-based research initiatives to produce the best outcomes for children and families.

We also collect and analyze data from state and tribal child support agencies.  We use the data to develop the Annual Report to Congress, highlighting program achievements and statistics about caseload, collections and expenses.
