What can we learn about ECE arrangements in the NSECE Household Survey
Datta, A. Rupa, 21 October, 2016
Chicago, IL: NORC

The Household Survey of the National Survey of Early Care and Education includes extensive data about early care and education (ECE) arrangements used by a nationally representative sample of households in winter/spring 2012. Available arrangement-level data include: type of care, location of care, distance of care from the household's residence, cost to parents for the care, and information about the schedule of care used in a reference week. Because multiple arrangements were collected for each child and data are collected for all children under age 13 in the household, data are also available about how many arrangements each child uses, how many children in a household share an arrangement, or how many different providers a household uses. The webinar "What can we learn about ECE arrangements in the NSECE Household Survey" will provide an overview of arrangement-level information in the National Survey of Early Care and Education, including data on geography, cost, type of care, and schedule, and how to match arrangements across providers or children within a household.

The webinar introduced the series of four early care and education data briefs and described data sets that were included; described the use of the interactive tools; and provided two illustrative examples of how to use the briefs and interactive tools to access the most relevant data set(s) that will best help answer researchers' questions.
