Child welfare leaders nationwide have invested significant resources in improving well-being outcomes for children and families, and stakeholders want to know whether these efforts are having an impact. National expert Dr. Heather Ringeisen presents guidance about issues to consider when attempting to measure changes in well-being outcomes over time. The National Survey of Child and Adolescent Well-Being (NSCAW): Implications for Child Welfare Evaluations The National Survey of Child and Adolescent Well-Being (NSCAW) provides nationally representative, longitudinal data on children and families that have been involved with child welfare. This resource can be a valuable asset to child welfare leaders and evaluators interested in studying well-being outcomes at the State and local levels. Dr. Heather Ringeisen illustrates the ways the NSCAW can provide a meaningful comparison group for those interested in assessing child and adolescent well-being outcomes in their jurisdictions. We anticipate the launch of more resources and videos through June 2014. Each video tackles an evaluation-related topic, and many propose solutions to common evaluation problems and direct viewers to additional tools and resources. The videos combine illustration, animation, motion graphics, and content from national experts. The videos are available on the Children’s Bureau website .
