Center for Administrative Data Analysis
The Center for Administrative Data Analysis’s (CADA) goal is to facilitate high-quality research using administrative data to better understand how to enable human flourishing. CADA originated from partnerships with local school districts in California. Like many organizations, schools collect substantial amounts of data in their regular course of business. These data play an important role in the decision-making process. However, schools and other organizations lack the data needed to understand the challenges faced by those they are serving beyond their institution, limiting their ability to help them meet these challenges successfully.
