This case study examines the use of integrated administrative datasets for secondary data analysis to conduct a longitudinal study of the impact of singular or combined experiences of child maltreatment and child exposure to intimate partner violence upon school attendance and academic achievement over time. The ability to integrate these data offered an opportunity to bridge these “siloed” systems to understand more fully children’s experiences and needs. Practicalities of data management, establishing a group design for longitudinal inquiry, and the complexity of data analysis are described. The promising utility and limits of using integrated data are noted.
