Early Childhood Data in Action

This November 2018 report from the National Institute for Children’s Health Quality (NICHQ) and the Center for the Study of Social Policy offers case studies from Indianola, Mississippi; Ventura County, California; and Philadelphia, Pennsylvania using their early childhood data in clear and important ways to tailor more effective interventions and yield better results. Key themes that emerged were the importance of organizing a community around a collective goal; improving the quality of early childhood services; informing critical public policy decisions, and the need for a respected “backbone” organization to oversee data collection and support data use efforts.
