Limited Analytic Capacity

There is an enormous amount of fragmented information being collected about children and youth and their placements, but no one has either the mandate or the analytic infrastructure to synthesize the information. Each data collection initiative appears to be conducted independently without coordination with other initiatives. Further, there has been no effort to develop a systematic approach to research and analysis that reduces duplication, maximizes efficiency, and ensures that the data collected is of the highest quality possible.
