Welcome to TexProtects!


Our mission is to provide a series of easy to understand tutorial videos that will allow the target audience for the TexProtects Child Maltreatment Data Dashboard to utilize the tool efficiently and effectively. In addition, if we complete the series of tutorial videos to our project partners satisfaction, they would like us to being working on additional coding for the backend of the Data Dashboard and identifying additional sources of data for the Data Dashboard.

The Data Dashboard is a tool allowing analysts to download and chart the number of child protection indicators already collected by the state Texas Department of Family and Protective Services (TDFS) based on county, region, or state for a single year or multiple years to track trends and it was completed by a previous team in Fall 2016.
