What is the benefit of contributing data to the database?

The benefit of contributing data to the National IV-E database is to create a national picture of Title IV-E stipend recipients. The Database will centralize demographic and other information on Child Welfare Educational Partnership graduates and program information in an effort to develop a national picture of the child welfare workforce. It will also serve as the foundation for the next phase of work, including a more complex analysis of student/alumni data and possible multi-state outcome studies.
