Summer Training Webinar Series 2022
"The Power of Linking Administrative Data"


The theme for this summer’s NDACAN Summer Training Series is the power of linking administrative data in research on child welfare. Sessions include data management workshops, linking across NDACAN data products and linking NDACAN data to external data products, and applied analysis workshops that leverage linking possibilities. This summer’s series is meant to provide additional training to help participants advance research projects using NDACAN’s data and increase the impact of such work by highlighting the unique possibility for linking within and outside of NDACAN. We hope you’ll join us!

Sessions will occur on the following Wednesdays from 12–1 PM EST via Zoom.
Free event, registration required.
