Our Identities, Ourselves: A Guide to Anti-Racist Data Collection for System Leaders and Data Administrators

This guide offers best practices for collecting data about race, ethnicity, and other demographic information, including sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, national origin, language spoken, disability, religion, and tribal affiliation in child welfare agencies. It supports the collection of comprehensive demographic data to serve multiple purposes: to affirm young people and their families in their identities, to be able to identify trends and analyze racial disproportionality and disparities, to enforce anti-discrimination policy, and to develop programs and services to meet specific needs.
