Information Paper: Data Gaps in Early Childhood: Identifying and bringing together available information (cat. no. 4105.0.55.001)

This information paper will report on a data mapping pilot project undertaken by the ABS, in collaboration with several other agencies. The aim of the project is to consider ways of improving the evidence base on early childhood, through better use of existing data held by government agencies. The project will investigate the existing range of data sources relevant to identified high priority policy questions in the area of early childhood learning and care. This will include ascertaining how the existing data sources relate to the key information requirements, where gaps exist and what access arrangements are in place. Recommendations for improving the evidence base for policy development and evaluation will be proposed, from considering ways to better access existing information, or the creation of new information from existing data sources.
