Kidsdata.org Redesigned: Same Great Data, Easier to Use
In its first major update since 2009, Kidsdata.org, a program of the Lucile Packard Foundation for Children’s Health has been completely redesigned. This resource promotes the health and well-being of children in California by providing easy-to-use tools and information that offer high-quality, wide-ranging, local data to those who work on behalf of children. The redesign now makes it quicker and easier for you to find, customize and use data on more than 500 measures of children’s health and well-being. Through kidsdata.org, the foundation aims to raise the visibility of key issues affecting California's children and make it easy for leaders and policymakers to use data in their work, whether that’s assessing community needs, setting priorities, tracking progress, making program or policy decisions, preparing grant proposals and reports, or other work.

HARC is open to the home visiting programs that provide home visiting to expectant families or families of children birth to five years, leaders of home visiting networks and home visiting researchers. Members of HARC will learn about opportunities to participate in research of interest to them, network with colleagues from diverse home visiting programs and gain quick access to important study findings.
