Programs in Population Sciences (PIPS) will host a webinar presenting on how to use the resources from diversitydatakids.org in the classroom.

Information: diversitydatakids.org provides a broad range of child wellbeing measures to inform policy analysis and decision makers. The site provides a wealth of data and visualizations that make it particularly valuable for incorporating data into a variety of undergraduate and graduate courses in sociology, social work, policy, and education.

Webinar presenters will lead participants through an overview of the diversitydatakids.org website before demonstrating how instructors can specifically use the site's rankings, maps, profiles, and Child Opportunity Index scores to teach about Neighborhood Opportunity.

 

Programs in the Population Sciences (PiPS) offers a central point where undergraduate students interested in pursuing graduate studies or careers in the population sciences can find information and connect with others.
