This document provides an overview and brief description of the folders, files, and syntax included in the CFSR round 3 zip file; considerations and steps for running the syntax; and software requirements.
This document provides the syntax used to perform data-quality checks, calculate observed performance, and calculate risk-standardized performance on the seven statewide data indicators. This document may help individuals develop a better understanding of the statistical calculations or provide assistance for individuals who do not have SPSS and/or STATA statistical software to run the syntax files.
This group of documents provides the syntax and supporting files in SPSS format that were used to calculate data quality and observed performance. Note: Syntax to calculate risk-standardized performance for each state uses a national, risk-adjusted model that requires child-level data from all states (i.e., national datasets) and thus cannot be replicated by states or other interested parties.
This page provides links to a body of tools developed to provide technical assistance guidance to help child welfare agencies learn more about best practices in implementing various data exchange agreements with other programs or agencies. While some data exchanges are required by Comprehensive Child Welfare Information System (CCWIS) projects, each toolkit includes information that applies to any child welfare information technology project.
