The presentation here covers the previously published Guidelines for Developing Data Sharing Agreements to Use State Administrative Data for Early Care and Education Research. These slides include key points from the Guidelines resource, as well as advice and lessons learned from early care and education researchers—both inside and outside state agencies—who have developed data sharing agreements.
The presentation and resource were produced as part of the Child Care Administrative Data Analysis Center (CCADAC), which works to strengthen the ability of state and territory child care administrators and their research partners to utilize administrative data to address policy-relevant early care and education research questions. CCADAC is funded by the Office of Planning, Research and Evaluation, Administration for Children and Families, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
