Welcome to the National Data Archive on Child Abuse and Neglect (NDACAN) website

A resource since 1988, the National Data Archive on Child Abuse and Neglect (NDACAN) promotes scholarly exchange among researchers in the child maltreatment field. NDACAN acquires microdata from leading researchers and national data collection efforts and makes these datasets available to the research community for secondary analysis. NDACAN supports information-sharing through its Child Maltreatment Research List Serve and its Updata e-newsletter and provides data analysis opportunities to researchers through conference workshops and its annual Summer Research Institute. Join our mailing list to receive the free Updata e-newsletter and other NDACAN announcements.

Researchers looking for child abuse statistics should read the NDACAN Frequently Asked Questions.
