|Description:||Many states engaged in federal grant work related to early childhood care and education are building data systems to support program and policy decisionmaking related to young children and their families. Two systemic efforts, a quality rating and improvement system (QRIS) and an early childhood integrated data system (ECIDS), draw on a variety of early childhood data sources to produce information relevant to the needs of their respective stakeholders. Although QRIS and ECIDS efforts serve different purposes within a state's early childhood and education communities, coordinating across the two systems can result in efficiencies in data collection as well as increased capacity to address policy and programmatic questions of statewide interest. This publication describes the goals and purposes of a QRIS and an ECIDS as well as how states can approach coordinating work on both systems. (author abstract)|
