This brief, published by the National Research Center on Hispanic Children and Families (the Center), explores how integrated data systems (IDS) data may be an important and cost-efficient resource for better understanding public service use among low-income Hispanics in the United States.
The Center was launched in 2013 by Abt Associates and Child Trends, together with university partners (University of Maryland-College Park, University of North Carolina at Greensboro, and the Institute for Human Development and Social Change at New York University).  It was established by a five-year cooperative agreement from the Office of Planning, Research and Evaluation, an office of the Administration for Children and Families in the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. 
Authors Dr. Michael López and Dr. Todd Grindal discuss big data’s potential impact on low-income Hispanic children and families in this Center blog entry.
