State of the States: Child Data Elements Linked or in 1 System

Child-level data can be collected and stored in multiple ways. States that have their data in one data system or can routinely link all of their child-level data have greater capacity to address critical policy questions than states that do not. Have questions about your state’s data, or want to learn more about what other states are doing to enhance their state data systems? Contact DaSy.

Individual child-level data elements reside in one system or have been linked.

These data are based on information collected by the DaSy Center and the Infant Toddler Coordination Association (ITCA) in fall 2019. Electronic surveys were sent to Part C and Part B 619 coordinators in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, the Department of Defense, Bureau of Indian Education, and U.S. territories. If data were not provided in 2019, 2015 data were used if available, otherwise 2013 data were used if available. Individual state information is presented with permission from authorized state Part C and Part B 619 staff. State Part C or Part B 619 coordinators or data managers may provide information, make a correction, or request a copy of their responses by contacting DaSy.
