The International Society for Child Indicators

Why is it important?

Researchers, data users, child advocates, and policymakers have made considerable advances in developing and using indicators to measure child and adolescent well-being.

These advances have been made possible by improvements the collection and use of data, as well as by collaborative efforts at the local, national, regional, and international levels.  However, these important efforts have been undertaken without the benefit of an organizing structure to support and foster collaboration, integrate findings, and coordinate and disseminate research.  In short, the field is reaching a critical mass without an organized professional home.

The International Society for Child Indicators (ISCI) offers that home.
