Next Steps

Data collection for the New Jersey Families Study is complete. We are now preparing the data for later use and analysis. Our goal is to build an early childhood database for the global research community using data from the New Jersey Families Study. This Power Point presentation is intended for use with potential funders of a two-year planning grant that would facilitate a series of tests and experiments on a sample of the data. These tests would allow us to determine the optimal approaches, including time and money costs, for preparing a sustainable database that houses all related New Jersey Families Study data and documentation.
