Using Analytics to Protect At-Risk Children

Presented by

Beena Tharakan, Ernst & Young and Greg Henderson, SAS

About this talk

One of the paramount responsibilities of government is the protection of the welfare of youths and children. Study after study has demonstrated the correlation between contact and interaction with child protective services and later quality-of-life outcomes. And on too many occasions, at-risk youth become tragic statistics before they reach adulthood. In the on-demand webinar Using Advanced Analytics to Protect At-Risk Children, hosted by Institute of Public Administration of Canada (IPAC) Chief Executive Officer Robert Taylor, experts from SAS Institute and Ernst & Young discuss the challenges facing child welfare professionals, how data from disparate sources can flag high-risk situations, and how an evidence-based approach, focused on outcomes for at-risk children, can be driven through the operation, from policy-makers to program managers to front-line workers and improve outcomes.
