- National Data Analysis System (NDAS)
Thank you for interest in NDAS. This system is no longer supported by CWLA. Below, you will find some information on the background of this system.
What was NDAS?
The National Data Analysis System (NDAS) was a part of CWLAis National Center for Research, Data, and Technology from 1997 - 2009. NDAS made child welfare data and statistics available to Internet users. It allowed users to create customized tables and graphs.
Why is it no longer supported?
NDAS was funded by State agencies who had an interest in promoting discussion around federal and state data issues. Much of the data can now be found on other websites and publications.
Where can I get some child welfare data?
Currently, you can access national and state by state data here:
- Linking Research to Practice
- The Research to Practice (R2P) effort is focused on discovering and presenting to the child welfare community, relevant information regarding programs and/or practices involved in any of the levels of research rigor. We work to accomplish this in a spirit of collaboration with others so that we can support individuals and agencies providing services to children and families.
How can you become involved? We want to hear from you! If your agency has an effective program or practice with an evaluation component to support your track record of success, we'd love to hear from you! However, if you are now just at the beginning point of planning to evaluate your promising practice or program, we'd also love to hear from you. We can share with you how to use our toolkit series or discuss with you any other way we might be helpful. Are you ready to share your experience with others? Contact us, and will work with you on that.
