Abstract

[The previous chapters focus on a wide range of indicators of child well-being, their uses and potential uses, and numerous methods of data collection and dissemination. At the same time, the breadth of perspectives and range of examples for the measurement and use of indicators illustrates the lack of solid knowledge and consensus about what types of indicators are most salient to national and local policymakers, to program directors, and to academic constituencies. Furthermore, we still lack an understanding of the conditions (context and mode of dissemination) that lead to specific indicators having an impact. In this chapter, we attempt to identify important gaps in our knowledge of child indicators and suggest ways in which research can begin to fill those gaps. We also discuss how research can best make use of indicators.]
