Summer Workshop in Quantitative Methods for Aboriginal Child Welfare Research, Mai 2009
This course provides an introduction to quantitative research methods in Aboriginal child welfare research. It is designed for students or researchers with an interest in child welfare issues and for child welfare administrators or workers who wish to make greater use of child welfare data in their work. It will be a hands on, intensive workshop which will guide participants through the process of defining a research question, conducting basic research (descriptive statistics and crosstabulations), and presenting research results. Participants will conduct research using data from the Canadian Incidence Study of Reported Child Abuse and Neglect (CIS 2003), a national dataset that contains over 400 variables which can be used to answer questions about Aboriginal child welfare. Skills learned in the workshop will prepare participants to conduct additional analysis using CIS 2003 or other child welfare data.
