11/3/2005:   The National Data Analysis System (NDAS), a free online service provided by CWLA and sponsoring states, has posted new data on child well-being, including the most recent children's health data and an issue brief on childhood poverty.

The updated children's health information contains data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. Updates include information on the 2003 teen birth rate, 2004 vaccination coverage, and 2003 and 2004 SCHIP Enrollment.

The issue brief, Childhood Poverty, uses 2003 data sources to discuss children living in poverty. It analyzes childhood poverty rates over time and discusses the implications of poverty on children's health and well-being.

Also new on the NDAS website are results from a recent national survey revealing differences in state policies and reporting of data used in the federal outcome measure and standard for reunification. Forty-one states responded to the survey. A bulletin about the survey provides the survey results, their implications, and recommendations to improve definitional consistency.
