PolicyWise for Children and Families manages the Child and Youth Data Lab (CYDL). Data Bytes are bite-sized pieces of data from the CYDL’s longitudinal project, Experiences of Alberta Children and Youth Over Time, 2005-06 to 2010-11. Fourteen reports are available from the study here along with the program overlap matrix. Analyses and report writing are ongoing. Each Data Byte highlights a single finding from a full report or the program overlap matrix and is meant to give readers a quick data morsel to chew on. Our goal with the Data Bytes is to share with our stakeholders the wide variety of results in the project, create a way for them to explore the full reports and program overlap matrix, and encourage people to think about policy implications.
