The California Child Welfare Indicators Project (CCWIP) is a collaborative venture between the University of California at Berkeley (UCB) and the California Department of Social Services (CDSS). The project is housed in the School of Social Welfare, and provides policymakers, child welfare workers, researchers, and the public with direct access to customizable information on California’s entire child welfare system.
The California Child Welfare Indicators Project is engaged in ongoing research projects and initiatives that use state child welfare administrative data as well as other linked data sources. Conference presentations and other research output using CWS/CMS data are publicly available on this website to inform policymakers and practitioners on key child welfare issues.
