More than merely fulfilling administrative requirements, data collection and analysis can help child welfare professionals fine-tune their interventions to better serve children and families. The July 2004 issue of the North Carolina Division of Social Services' newsletter, Practice Notes, focuses on various aspects of data and child welfare services. Topics include:

  • Using data for agency self-evaluation
  • Using data-based newsletters to engage frontline staff
  • The influence of organizational culture on the use of data in decision-making
  • The link between individual case documentation and the results of the Federal Child and Family Services Reviews
