Child Wellbeing Dashboard

Our interactive dashboard, created in partnership with nationally recognized Child Trends, provides data-driven insight into the state of child wellbeing in Texas and the United States. Using an evidence-informed framework, our user-friendly, first-of-its-kind platform lays the foundation to assess positive outcomes, potential risks and areas for improvement in child welfare. With the most up-to-date data, policymakers, advocates and community members can make informed decisions to drive positive change in child welfare. As we enter phase two of our work, TexProtects welcomes feedback on how to further expand the dashboard’s capacities.
