Research BriefEarly ChildhoodSep 1 2016

This is one of a set of five “Data Directions” that present issues ECE staff may encounter if they are interested in or attempting to share or link their data with other agencies. Each Data Direction presents a hypothetical scenario, and then outlines possible action steps programs could use to address the issues raised. This first Data Direction offers ideas about how to set up and structure a data governance entity, including who to invite to join such a group, roles and responsibilities for members, and how to develop data-use policies.
