Building the Next Generation of Child Support Policy Research


Research and analysis are powerful tools that can help policy makers and program administrators make important decisions about the child support program. In August of 2018, the Office of the Assistant Secretary for Planning and Evaluation released a research agenda for the child support program informed through conversations with the field, including a two-day roundtable.

How can we use the research agenda?  What are some examples of how child support administrators are tackling these questions?  And how can we encourage and sustain a culture of critical inquiry and constant learning in the child support program?

This webinar will present the child support policy research agenda from those that were involved in its creation. Child support researchers and administrators will then share how they are using it to inform their work.  Finally, there will be a conversation on how the research agenda can help foster the ongoing work of NCSEA and the child support community.
