Mapping equity and child resilience

Zip codes influence child outcomes, but do not determine them.  New IDEAS mapping reveals bright spots where children in high-risk areas grow up to exceed expectations.  You can find these maps on our Research page, Brief 3.   

What explains the successes?  Our annual public meeting convened local experts to explore underlying factors and see how we can use evidence from integrated data to better align research, resources, and policies.  

IDEAS Synergy Event 2020

Equity and resilience mapping with integrated data: 
Aligning early childhood needs, resources, and policies

Our Synergy Symposium event went online in 2020, drawing a diverse group of 130 early childhood experts, from community agencies to interdisciplinary researchers and leading provider systems. Together, we reviewed new mapping of neighborhood risks and child resilience across Miami-Dade, highlighting Census tracts in Little Havana and Little Haiti where children are doing better than expected.  The June 11 event recording and presentations begin a conversation about equity, key factors, and developing evidence to guide practices and policies.
