Using maps to inform decisions about child care and early education


The goal of this resource is to assist CCEE leaders in using maps to make data-driven decisions about how to improve CCEE access. In Part 1, we describe how leaders can use maps to make decisions about CCEE access across four areas: policy effects, resource allocation, supply building, and supporting families. We also outline how CCEE leaders can engage partners to inform this decision-making process. In Part 2, we outline technical considerations for developing maps about CCEE access. These considerations are organized into three areas: selecting the appropriate data to include for ease of decision making, choosing an analytic approach that supports decision making, and displaying map contents to support decision making.
