Working with Administrative Data

The term administrative data refers to information about individual children, families, and/or providers of early care and education and other family benefits that is collected and maintained as part of the operation of government programs. The resources on this page were selected from a collection of resources about acquiring, using, managing, linking, and analyzing administrative data in early childhood or related fields. The current resources were selected because they:

  1. highlighted advantages and disadvantages to using administrative data;
  2. detailed steps or procedures about how to use administrative data;
  3. provided state examples about administrative data use; or
  4. were tools or toolkits that housed information about administrative data.
