CSDA research fellow Bénédicte Rouland is focused on extracting meaningful answers about child welfare from the swathes of information held in New Zealand’s Integrated Data Infrastructure (IDI).
Danish child welfare experts and researchers with an interest in the use of predictive risk modelling travelled to the US in November to join a study tour led by CSDA Co-Director Rhema Vaithianathan.
CSDA co-director Professor Tim Maloney has become the first Chief Economist at the Ministry of Social Development, a position he will hold until November 2019.
In February 2018, the Centre for Social Data Analytics will host our third annual workshop. The focus for this year's workshop is child and youth outcomes. We are very pleased to host Heather Royer (University of California, Santa Barbara) as the keynote speaker.
We invite you to submit applied economics papers on child and youth outcomes, which could include - but not be limited to - topics such as early childhood, schooling, health, family issues, and public policies.
