About CHDL

The Child Health Data Lab (CHDL) is a repository of current and archival information on child and adolescent health in Chicago and Illinois. The CHDL supports efforts of investigators and program planners at Children's Memorial Hospital who focus on injury prevetion and community-based efforts to improve the health of youth.

CHDL collaborates with other organizations working in the area of children's health in the city of Chicago and the state of Illinois. We believe that many of the health problems facing children are related to a broad range of socioeconomic factors. Through collaboration, we work to pinpoint public policy solutions to the prevention of unintentional and violent injury to children and to the improvement of children's health more generally.

CHDL conducts epidemiologic research in childhood and adolescent injury and health in Illinois and Chicago. We also evaluate interventions designed to reduce injuries.
