The mission of the National Data Archive on Child Abuse and Neglect (NDACAN) is to facilitate the secondary analysis of research data relevant to the study of child abuse and neglect. By making data available to increasing numbers of researchers, NDACAN seeks to provide an accessible and scientifically productive means for researchers to explore important issues in the child maltreatment field.

NDACAN is a project of the Bronfenbrenner Center for Translational Research located in the College of Human Ecology at Cornell University in Ithaca, NY. Funding is provided by grant 90-CA-1667 from the Children's Bureau, United States Department of Health and Human Services.
