The Development and Use of Child Well-Being Indicators in the Prevention of Child Abuse and Neglect

This summary report describes and summarizes Child Trends’ efforts in developing child well-being indicators as part of the arsenal of new tools and materials that can help guide those states that seek to reform their data collection system towards a goal-oriented standard of accountability. In this report we seek to highlight what we have learned about strategies to improve data quality and to provide guidance that agencies can use to improve their current practices.
