This brief, developed by the Assistant Secretary for Planning and Evaluation and NORC at the University of Chicago, illustrates how five states have used early care and education workforce data for impact. Snapshots for Florida, Iowa, Nebraska, Oregon, and Virginia each offer insight on how these states have utilized partnerships, their policy contexts, concrete ways they have used data to drive impact, and key data sources that informed their efforts. Readers will gain insights into possible ways to leverage partnerships and the policy landscape to advance data collection and use to address the data deficit and improve issues related to the workforce shortage, inequities, and inefficiencies.
