Summer Training Webinar Series 2020
"New Horizons for Child Welfare Data"


While much of the research focused on child welfare has used survey-based data or locally linked data, national linked administrative data and new acquisitions in historical data have created novel and enthusing opportunities for insights in the field. This year’s summer training series will focus on the Archive’s new historical data acquisition and national linked administrative data. The sessions will highlight the available data, the types of questions these data can provide insight to, and how the Archive can support researchers in these endeavors. Please join the CMRL or follow us on Twitter to receive announcements about this series.

Sessions will occur on the following Wednesdays from 12–1PM Eastern Time via Zoom.
