Subject:Re: Predictive Risk Modeling

Emily: I am very interested in this idea. Can you provide citations which lead to articles that one can read about this research? Thanks Jon Gould Jonathan W.

Eastern Daylight Time, ehornste@usc.edu writes: Colleagues – I am working with an international team at the Centre for Applied Research in Economics at the University of Auckland to assess how Predictive Risk Modeling (PRM) could be applied to identify and target children at high risk of abuse. We aim to develop a PRM tool suitable for use by government departments in developed countries. The tool would automatically harvest multiple administrative databases whenever a child comes into contact with government agencies, such as income support agencies, thus generating a risk score for the likelihood this child will go on to become a victim of neglect/abuse (based on the child's background and that of his or her parents and caregivers). High scores could then automatically alert various agencies to consider targeting extra resources and possible interventions as appropriate to this child. We seek information on any jurisdiction where PRM has been used in this way, or is proposed to be. We are interested in unsuccessful as well as successful attempts and anything else or anyone else that could help us to customize such an algorithm and help governments to implement it. If you have been involved in such a program or know of anyone who has, please contact Dr Irene de Haan at i.dehaan@auckland.ac.nz Please note that we are interested in experiences with computer programs or algorithms. We are not seeking information on operator-driven systems where staff make a risk assessment based on their own judgment, or a manual checklist. Thank you in advance for any leads!
