- What does rapid analysis for data-based decisionmaking mean and what are steps in the process?
- How can agencies use data to better define and understand the problems that COVID-19 has created for the education and care of young children?
- How have states used data to identify solutions to support child care facilities and match child care needs to supply during the time of COVID-19?
States are collecting data to make quick decisions about delivering early care and education during the COVID-19 pandemic. This webinar supports Child Care and Development Fund (CCDF) Lead Agency staff, their research partners, and others in conducting analysis for data-based decisionmaking when quick decisions are needed and data are limited. The webinar includes (1) an overview of the process of conducting rapid analysis for data-based decision-making; (2) an example of applying the process for data-based decisionmaking to school openings; and (3) examples of how researchers and state agency staff in Illinois and California are using data to understand the problems COVID-19 has created in child care and make decisions to address supply and funding. Following the presentations, speakers address questions from the audience.
