Using existing large-scale data to study early care and education among Hispanics: Project overview and methodology
Crosby, Danielle A.; Mendez, Julia L., March, 2016
(Publication No. 2016-08). Bethesda, MD: National Research Center on Hispanic Children and Families.

To promote the well-informed and strategic use of data for building the knowledge base about Latinos' ECE access and utilization, the interrelated briefs in this series provide summary information and data tables that can be used by researchers to select the studies, samples, and variables most appropriate for their research questions. This is the first of four briefs in this series. It describes the project methodology and summarizes key design features of the selected data sets, including the availability of sociodemographic indicators of particular relevance to studying Hispanic populations.

Using existing large-scale data to study early care and education among Hispanics: Search and decision-making
Crosby, Danielle A.; Helms, Heather M.; Mendez, Julia L.; et al., March, 2016
(Publication No. 2016-09). Bethesda, MD: National Research Center on Hispanic Children and Families.

New research is needed to learn more about how, when, and why Latino parents access certain early childhood programs and services, and not others. As highlighted in this brief series (see "Description of ECE data brief series" text box), numerous existing large-scale data sets offer potentially valuable information about the ECE experiences of Hispanic populations. This brief on Latino child care search and decision-making focuses in particular on what these studies have to offer about how Hispanic families seek out and select ECE settings. Researchers can use this review and associated data tables to identify the study/studies, samples, and variables most appropriate for their research questions. (author abstract)

Using existing large-scale data to study early care and education among Hispanics: How Hispanic parents and children experience ECE settings
Mendez, Julia L.; Helms, Heather M.; Van Schagen Johnson, Amy; et al., March, 2016
(Publication No. 2016-11). Bethesda, MD: National Research Center on Hispanic Children and Families.

As part of a larger effort to build research capacity related to ECE issues for low-income Hispanic families (see "Description of ECE data brief series" text box), this brief describes data elements specific to the experiences children and families have with ECE providers and programs, including the quality of ECE settings, parental satisfaction, and parents' experiences coordinating ECE arrangements with employment demands. We discuss the opportunities and limitations represented in existing large-scale data sets in light of current literature and policy priorities, with an emphasis on data elements that may have particular relevance for low-income Hispanic families. Researchers can use this review and associated data tables to select the study, samples, and variables most appropriate for their research questions. (author abstract)

Using existing large-scale data to study early care and education among Hispanics: Families' utilization of early care and education
Crosby, Danielle A.; Helms, Heather M.; Mendez, Julia L.; et al., March, 2016
(Publication No. 2016-10). Bethesda, MD: National Research Center on Hispanic Children and Families.

As part of a project analyzing existing large-scale data sets with information about the ECE experiences of Hispanic populations (see "Description of ECE data brief series" text box), this brief describes survey data elements relevant to studying the patterns and characteristics of Hispanic families' ECE use. In addition to type, setting, and amount of ECE care, we highlight elements related to out-of-pocket costs and use of assistance. We also point to new directions for the study of child care utilization among Latinos. Researchers can use this review and associated data tables to select the study, samples, and variables most appropriate for their research questions. (author abstract)
