More information on this event to come.

Join us to learn about the Children's Data Network and how it can help funders gain powerful insights into the populations they serve, advance evidence-rich public policies, and guide high-impact programs to improve the health, safety, and well-being of our children and families. 

Housed at USC’s Suzanne Dworak-Peck School of Social Work, the CDN 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, the project has resulted in a robust technical and scientific infrastructure to support the linkage and analysis of population data from multiple sources.

This resource can be leveraged to gather important insights into the well-being of at-risk populations in our region in a way that is powerful, cost effective, and scientifically accurate.

Join this session to hear from CDN leaders about how data linkage can help refine your philanthropic strategies and improve evaluation efforts:

  • Emily Putnam-Hornstein, Director, Children’s Data Network and Associate Professor, Suzanne Dworak-Peck School of Social Work, USC
  • Jacquelyn McCroskey,Co-Director, Children's Data Network and Professor, Suzanne Dworak-Peck School of Social Work, USC
  • Regan Foust, Director of Strategic Partnerships and Research Scientist, Children’s Data Network

Together we'll also discuss how to expand use of this resource to reach its full potential and reach additional stakeholders.

The CDN receives essential infrastructure funding from First 5 LA and the Conrad N. Hilton Foundation, additional project support from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, the Laura and John Arnold Foundation, and the California Department of Social Services, and operates in partnership with the California Child Welfare Indicators Project at UC Berkeley.
