What is ISCI?

The International Society for Child Indicators (ISCI) offers an organised 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 organising structure that brings together experts many fields worldwide. The goals are numerous: from contributing to the the well-being of all children to improving data ressources and methodological approaches, collaboration in research is fundamental and will help organisations apply findings to policy and practice.
