AISP Network: Child Household Integrated Longitudinal Data System (CHILD)

About the Work

Case Western Reserve University’s Child Household Integrated Longitudinal Data (CHILD) system covers children and young adults living in Cuyahoga County beginning with the 1989 birth cohort. Data from numerous agencies (approx. 35) are linked at the individual level and allow the University’s Center on Urban Poverty and Community Development and their agency data partners to better understand and address cross-sector policy issues and program needs.

Child Household Integrated Longitudinal Data System (CHILD) is hosted by Case Western Reserve University.
