Stopping Child Abuse Before It’s Too Late 11

Each day, social workers must decide whether or not the children they visit should be removed from their parents’ homes. And that decision often changes the courses of those kids’ lives. Naomi Schaefer Riley, a visiting fellow at the American Enterprise Institute, joins guest host Courtney Collins to talk about how we can better harness statistical information to help make these decisions. Her story “Can Big Data Help Save Abused Kids?” appears in Reason magazine.
