Date Issued: October, 2018
Publisher(s): Early Childhood Data Collaborative
Description: This brief highlights projects implemented in three states to integrate education, health, and/or social services data in order to inform policies that influence the lives of young children and their families. The Annie E. Casey Foundation (AECF) funded KIDS COUNT organizations in the states of Mississippi (MS), Minnesota (MN), and Rhode Island (RI), supporting each state in its use of integrated data to address one pressing early childhood policy question (see box below). The Early Childhood Data Collaborative (ECDC) had the privilege of contributing to the work of the three KIDS COUNT sites by providing technical assistance to support their completion of project goals and tracking their progress to document the benefits and challenges of this work.
