Subject:NDACAN Updata Newsletter, Summer 2009 (Vol. 21)

THE NDACAN UPDATA Summer 2009 (Vol. 21) The NDACAN Updata is your source for important Archive announcements and is distributed twice a year. RECENT DATA RELEASES * First Internet Youth Safety Survey (YISS-1) by David Finkelhor, Ph.D.; Kimberly J. Mitchell, Ph.D.; Janis Wolak, J.D.(Dataset #134) * Adoption and Foster Care Analysis and Reporting System (AFCARS) Adoption File, 2007 by the Children’s Bureau (Dataset #142) * Adoption and Foster Care Analysis and Reporting System (AFCARS) Foster Care File,2007 by the Children’s Bureau (Dataset #143) * National Child Abuse and Neglect Data System (NCANDS) Combined Aggregate File (CAF), FFY 2006 by the Children’s Bureau (Dataset #141) 2009 LONGSCAN SPECIAL RESEARCH MEETING This year’s Special Research Meeting was a smashing success! The Meeting featured data from the Longitudinal Studies on Child Abuse and Neglect (LONGSCAN). After reviewing 40 applications, Archive staff invited fifteen applicants to participate in this special event. The Meeting began with a networking reception for participants, Archive staff, and LONGSCAN investigators. Day two was filled with presentations by LONGSCAN investigators, Desmond Runyan, Al Litrownik, and Terri Lewis and concluded with a panel discussion featuring members of the LONGSCAN consortium. The presentations were video recorded and are available via the LONGSCAN support page of our website. Computing time (days 3-5), started off with one-on-one consultations with LONGSCAN consultants, Terri Lewis, Jamie Smith, and Miguel Villodas. In addition to working hard, everyone had an opportunity to enjoy the after-hours events, which included a group dinner at Madeline’s on the Ithaca Commons, a walk down the gorge, a visit to Taughannock Falls, and an excursion to The Stonecat Cafe, which overlooks Seneca Lake. On average, participants rated their time at the meeting as very productive and would recommend it to a colleague. Special thanks to the presenters & consultants from the LONGSCAN team, as well as to Lynn Martin who worked with us to pull this together and make it a huge success! The application for the 2010 Summer Research Institute will be available via our website (http://www.ndacan.cornell.edu) in Fall of 2009.
