Featured Initiatives and Resources:

This resource is a monthly overview compiling child care licensing data for all types of care, subsidized child care expenditures, and waiting list information statewide. The summary report is designed to provide a high level review of the NC Division of Child Development and Early Education (DCDEE) regulatory and subsidy information on a monthly basis.

The resource provides access to child data on topics including physical and mental health, access to quality health care, and the child’s family, neighborhood, school, and social context. Data is made easily accessible to parents, researchers, community health providers and anyone interested in maternal and child health.

The North Carolina State Center for Health Statistics is responsible for data collection, health-related research, production of reports and maintenance of a comprehensive collection of health statistics.
