Subject:Re: Examples of system level birth record and child welfare data system linkage

Terry, We published an article in a special issue of CYSR (2011) wrriten by Emily Putnam-Honstein and Barbara Needell that linked vital records and administrative child welfare data for the entire cohort of children born in California in 2002. It identified several factors readily observable at birth that predicted CPS referrals before age 5. Here's a link: http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0190740911001289.
