Aligning Community Resources for Prevention: A Geospatial Analysis of Risk and Protective Community Factors

Room: Maryland C

Presenters: Carl Ayers, Virginia Department of Social Services;  Dyann Daley, M.D., Predict Align Prevent


Predictive analytics is a growing trend in child welfare. Geospatial analytics is a model that uses location-based data to assess risk prior to a child entering the child welfare system, reflecting the national trend and movement towards early identification and prevention of child abuse. Geospatial analytics uses location-based data to build maps, which have been successful in identifying the geographic locations of future child maltreatment. Community members and stakeholders identify existing services and the gaps in services for the high-risk locations. Engaging a variety of community members and stakeholders redefines the responsibility of protecting children to all community members.
