Archiving the NICHD Study of Early Child Care at ICPSR

a PSC Research Project [ARCHIVE DISPLAY]

Investigator:   Amy M. Pienta

ICPSR proposes to archive and disseminate the first three phases of the NICHD Study of Early Child Care (SECC) using restricted-use agreements. The NICHD Study of Early Child Care (SECC) is a comprehensive longitudinal study investigating the relationship between child care experiences and characteristics and children's developmental outcomes. As of January 1, 2000 qualified researchers have been able to become affiliates of the study and therefore allowed to utilize data from the study. Currently, RTI is disseminating these data to qualified researchers under the terms of a restricted-use agreement. ICPSR conducted an initial assessment of the restricted data produced by RTI and has determined that ICPSR would be able to disseminate the files with additional processing. Although only minor processing is required, there are thousands of files that will be archived with ICPSR. The proposal describes the processing and archiving plan for the restricted data and documentation files of the Study of Early Child Care so that ICPSR can become the long-term archive for these valuable data
