Subject:*Data Available*: Voluntary Cooperative Information System (VCIS) Multi-Year File (1982-1995)

Voluntary Cooperative Information System (VCIS) Multi-Year File (1982-1995) The National Data Archive on Child Abuse and Neglect is pleased to announce the release of the dataset: Title: Voluntary Cooperative Information System (VCIS) Multi-Year File (1982-1995) Original Investigator: American Public Human Service Association (APHSA) (Formerly American Public Welfare Association (APWA)) Secondary Investigators: Alexander F. Roehrkasse, Ph.D. - Duke University, Chiara Fontaine - Cornell University, LeAnn McDowall - Cornell University, Sarah Sernaker, M.S. - Duke University, Clayton C. Covington, B.A. - Duke University Dataset Number: #247 Dataset description page: https://www.ndacan.acf.hhs.gov/datasets/dataset-details.cfm?ID=247 Abstract: The Voluntary Cooperative Information System (VCIS) compiled aggregate information about children who experienced substitute care in the United States between 1982 and 1995. Substitute care data were collected voluntarily by the American Public Welfare Association (APWA) from state agencies administering public child welfare programs. VCIS data are annual state-level counts of children entering, in, and exiting substitute care, tabulated by various child attributes such as age, sex, race/ethnicity, or duration of care. The VCIS therefore provides a basis for both cross-sectional and longitudinal state-level analysis, including through linkage to aggregated data from its successor, the Adoption and Foster Care Reporting and Analysis System (AFCARS). Note that VCIS data have significant limitations in terms of coverage and reliability, and users are strongly encouraged to read the User Guide carefully before using the data. ________________________________ National Data Archive on Child Abuse and Neglect (NDACAN) Cornell University / Duke University Telephone: 607-255-7799 Email: NDACAN@cornell.edu Website: www.ndacan.acf.hhs.gov Twitter: https://twitter.com/NDACAN_CU The National Data Archive on Child Abuse and Neglect is a service of the Children’s Bureau | Administration for Children and Families | U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Unsubscribe from the Child Maltreatment Research List (CMRL)
