Finding and Exploring Existing Large-Scale Data to Study Early Care and Education among Hispanics

This webinar, held on October 13, 2016, was hosted by Research Connections and the National Research Center on Hispanic Children and Families and was intended to help researchers learn about several new early care and education data resources. The National Research Center on Hispanic Children and Families recently released a series of data briefs and interactive tools to facilitate the access and use of existing, large-scale data sets to examine policy-relevant questions about early care and education use among low-income Hispanic families. The webinar introduced the series of four early care and education data briefs and described data sets that were included; described the use of the interactive tools; and provided two illustrative examples of how to use the briefs and interactive tools to access the most relevant data set(s) that will best help answer researchers’ questions.
