Putting the Pieces Together: New York Early Learning Program Data Systems

This report presents the results of surveys of New York State and New York City agencies providing services to young children. The surveys, undertaken by the Early Care & Learning Council and the New York State Council on Children and Families, set out to identify the elements of these agencies’ data systems and the accessibility of those elements. The surveys covered six broad dimensions of available early learning data: program and provider supply; enrollment, participant demographics, and demand; early childhood workforce; program quality; outcomes for children and families; and costs and financing. This report represents an important first step to help New York answer key questions through a coordinated early childhood data system.
