Data mining: We’ve got your numbers

December 8, 2009 at 4:05 am 1 comment

I recently stumbled across two data-banks I want to share:

  • Kidsdata.org offers a tremendous amount of data from all counties, cities, and school districts in California related to the health and well-being of children. Bonus: all information on the site is totally free!

UPDATE: Melinda Bossenmeyer of Peaceful Playgrounds also reminds of two additional resources:

  • Kids Count by The Annie E. Cassie Foundation provides “community level  information on kids.” INVALUABLE research resource.

    Would like to receive knowledge on any studies or data you’d like to share on human development, social psychology, cognition development – pertaining to childhood development from Pre-K through 12th grade education.
    I’m grant writer for Miami-Dade County Public Schools and always looking for the “latest”.
    Thanks
