Chapin Hall Hosts Inaugural Conference of International Society for Child Indicators

June 19, 2007

Chapin Hall Center for Children at the University of Chicago, a leading policy research center, will host the inaugural Conference of the International Society for Child Indicators (ISCI) on June 26-28 at Chicago’s Allerton Hotel, 701 North Michigan Avenue. The 3-day, first-of-its-kind conference will bring together nearly 200 attendees from 23 countries across five continents.

Nearly 90 papers and workshops will be presented, covering the measurement and monitoring of such child well-being indicators as safety, physical and emotional health, effects of poverty, civic-life skills, spirituality, and children’s perceptions of their own well-being. Policy implications of research in these areas will also be explored.

The conference is organized by ISCI co-chairs Robert Goerge, Chapin Hall Center for Children at the University of Chicago, and Asher Ben-Arieh, Hebrew University of Jerusalem.

The full conference schedule and presentation abstracts are available at the ISCI website at http://www.childindicators.org.
