Synopsis: Multilevel modeling was used to examine perceptions of interagency collaboration among 378 administrators, case managers, and service providers in 32 agencies serving children. Collaboration activities were grouped into four types--Financial and Physical Resources, Program Development and Evaluation, Client Services, and Collaborative Policies. Two-level multilevel analyses identified employees’ age and educational level as significant level-1 (i.e., individual) predictors of within-agency variability. At level-2, agencies that had more positive attitudes toward collaboration had significantly higher levels of collaboration in all four areas. Additionally, agencies that were more child-, family-, and community-focused engaged in more collaboration related to Program Development and Evaluation.
