The University of Chicago's Chapin Hall Center for Children proposed the use of administrative data collected in Illinois public child protective services agencies' computerized information systems to create a longitudinal database of the reporting and investigation of child abuse and neglect, children's experiences in foster care, children's and their families' characteristics, and foster care provider characteristics. This initial database ultimately grew to become the Integrated Database on Child and Family Programs in Illinois (IDB), an analytic resource that made it possible for researchers to create a comprehensive picture of the interactions children and their families have with various services offered by the state. This chapter describe the sequence of events that led to the implementation of the Quick Response project, which drew on the findings in the database.
