Early Childhood Secondary Data Analysis Project, 2012-2016

Project Overview

The purpose of this task order is to expand the knowledge base on early childhood development and programming by supporting secondary data analysis using archived datasets funded by the Office of Planning, Research and Evaluation (OPRE). In the near term, it is expected that the focus will be on the Head Start Impact Study (HSIS), Family and Child Experience Study (FACES), Early Head Start Research and Evaluation Project (EHSREP), Early Head Start Family and Child Experience Study (Baby FACES), and Head Start Classroom‐based Approaches and Resources for Emotion and Social skill promotion (Head Start CARES) datasets. Other Administration for Children and Families (ACF) datasets providing information regarding early childhood development may also be utilized including, for example, the data from the National Survey of Early Care and Education or the National Survey of Child and Adolescent Well‐Being. The primary role of this project will be to expand the knowledge base on early childhood development and programming to a new state of understanding through activities utilizing existing archived datasets maintained by ACF.
