National Survey of Early Care and Education (NSECE) Workshop

This workshop will provide an opportunity for researchers to explore advanced topics related to the National Survey of Early Care and Education (NSECE). Along with a discussion of the unique characteristics of the NSECE, the workshop will introduce potential data users to technical issues associated with using the NSECE for secondary analysis. In addition, participants will receive guidance on mastering the complex aspects of the study, including useful programming techniques and additional statistical resources. Advanced topics will include the use of children’s age categories, classifying types of care across files, and determining cost of care to families or price of care charged by providers. The workshop will discuss how to conduct comparable analyses across data files.


The workshop will be held in Ann Arbor, Michigan (USA) from 20 to 23 July 2015. Admitted graduate students, post-doctoral scholars, and junior faculty/researchers will be considered for one of a limited number of stipends to help with travel and housing costs.
