Child Maltreatment Incidence Data Linkages: In Search of Innovative Projects

Child Maltreatment Incidence Data Linkages: In Search of Innovative Projects

December 6, 2017

Share your insights and knowledge about innovative child maltreatment research to inform the Child Maltreatment Incidence Data Linkages project funded by the Administration for Children and Families’ Office of Planning, Research, and Evaluation (OPRE) in partnership with the Children’s Bureau.

Accurate and ongoing surveillance of the incidence of child maltreatment and related risk and protective factors can help shape prevention and intervention efforts. One promising approach to capturing this information is by linking local, state, or federal administrative data, such as those from child welfare, health, social services, education, and public safety agencies.

OPRE wants to learn from you.

Share what you know about innovative projects examining child maltreatment from:

  • academic researchers;
  • state and local administrators, or;
  • others using linked administrative data.

There is particular interest in projects using innovative analytic approaches or data sources to examine child maltreatment incidence and related risk and protective factors.

We invite you to send a brief description of the project (no more than 1 page per project) via email to cmidatalinkages@acf.hhs.gov by February 28, 2018. Please include your contact information in the description.
