Data Linking Toolkit: Introduction
What is data linking? Data linking is the process of connecting information about a record (e.g., child, service provider, service) from one data source with information related to that same record from another data source. This process can involve linking two existing data sets within a single program or linking one data set from one program with another data set from another program.
EC Data University – Data Analysis
The data analysis path expands on prior content to include concepts ranging from statistics to data use as well as their practical application. Data analysis is critical for transforming the ever-growing volume of raw data available to early childhood programs into meaningful information that may be used for checking data quality, identifying/answering programmatic questions, and decision-making.
EC Data University – Data Use & Sharing
Effective data use requires ongoing planning, analysis, and dissemination of data products. In many cases, data become more valuable when they are linked with other data, creating additional information from which new data products can be developed.
Data Linking Toolkit: Partnerships
A data partnership is a formal arrangement between two or more parties to collaborate to advance one or both partners’ data interests.
