New Research 

Integrated student supports
Integrated student supports (ISS) is one promising approach for promoting academic success that is taking hold in communities across the country. But what are integrated student supports, and are they effective at improving educational outcomes? Child Trends examined the research and evidence base for ISS, and its potential to help disadvantaged, marginalized, or struggling students. Here are the results.

National Survey

Linking early childhood data

Most states can't answer key policy questions about all children served in publicly-funded early care and education programs because child-level data are not linked across programs. The 2013 State of States' Early Childhood Data Systems report is based on a survey of 50 states and the District of Columbia, assessing the coordination of their early childhood data systems. The report is a product of the Early Childhood Data Collaborative, of which Child Trends is a partner. How's your state doing?

Roadmap for data infrastructure 

Collecting and using data are important aspects of improving early care and education systems. This roadmap will help states and localities build strong data infrastructures that support quality improvement and data reporting.

Research on child care subsidies
Research findings on the association between child care subsidy use and children's developmental outcomes have been mixed. Here's a review of the literature on child care subsidies, to help administrators, developers and policymakers choose and implement them.

Both of these are products of the Child Care and Early Education Policy and Research Analysis Project at the Office of Planning, Research and Evaluation.
