Child Welfare

Understanding the risk factors children face helps strengthen the work of child welfare agencies and programs. Mathematica contributes to these efforts by advancing research on child welfare programs. We work across a range of issues to provide expertise on the design of child abuse and neglect studies, evaluation technical assistance for homelessness prevention efforts, predictive analytics on service usage, and data-driven evaluations of home visiting and other programs.
