Data systems

By creating early-childhood systems, states also are developing data systems that provide information about children, their families and the services they use. Some of this information is for basic monitoring and claims processing, but states are increasingly seeking to design data systems that can be used to evaluate program strategies, identify gaps in services and support continuous learning and results accountability.

CFPC is involved in several efforts to improve the quality of and access to data collected by state agencies, including the work of the BUILD Initiative. Read BUILD's overview of data-systems work or view a list of related resources.
