The International Society for Child Indicators (ISCI) offers an organized professional home to support and foster collaboration, integrate findings, and disseminate research for developing and using indicators and measuring the status of child and adolescent well-being at the local, national, regional, and international levels.
Researchers, data users, child advocates, and policymakers have made considerable advances in developing and using child indicators. To support their work, ISCI provides an organizing structure that brings together experts in the field worldwide to:
- Contribute to the well-being of all children
- Share knowledge and experience
- Develop standards
- Improve data resources
- Foster collaborative research and projects
- Foster diversity in methodological approaches
- Enhance dissemination of information on the status of children
- Help organizations apply the findings to policy and practice
- Enhance the capacity of the field in countries that are in the initial stages of producing child well-being indicators.
ISCI conferences have been held every two years for the past 10 years. These conferences aim to gather researchers, practitioners, policy makers and child advocates from across the world to share and discuss the latest child indicator research and implications for policy and interventions.
