Using Data to Support Equity in Out-of-School Time
This issue brief from the National Center on Afterschool and Summer Enrichment (NCASE) directs attention to the importance of representation of OST/school-age child care in data.

This brief identifies data landscape scans, data mapping, and cost model estimation as practical strategies to analyze relevant information and identify needs for equitable results for OST/school-age child care programming.
