Description
  • Abstract

    The Early Head Start Family and Child Experiences Survey (Baby FACES) is a descriptive study of Early Head Start programs designed to inform policy and practice at both national and local levels. In 2007, the Office of Planning, Research and Evaluation (OPRE) in the Administration for Children and Families (ACF), United States Department of Health and Human Services, contracted with Mathematica Policy Research and its partners to implement this six-year longitudinal study in 89 Early Head Start programs around the country. Baby FACES followed two cohorts of children through their time in Early Head Start, starting in 2009, the first wave of data collection through age 3, with the final round of data in spring 2012. The Newborn Cohort includes pregnant mothers and newborn children (194 are in this group). The 1-year-old Cohort includes children who were approximately age 1 (782 were aged 10 to 15 months).
  • Abstract

    The Early Head Start Family and Child Experiences Survey, or Baby FACES, is a longitudinal descriptive study of Early Head Start that captures information on Early Head Start families and children, teachers and home visitors, and programs. Research questions for Baby FACES address four aims: Describing Early Head Start and program services and staff; Describing the population served by the program; Relating program services to child and family outcomes; Assessing the properties of measures used in the study.;
  • Methods

    From a nationally representative sample of 89 programs, the researchers enrolled parents of children who were in two age cohorts in spring 2009: newborns, which include pregnant women and children up to 8 weeks old, and 1-year olds, which include children ages 10 to 15 months. Researchers gathered detailed information from program directors on program operations, services, management, and characteristics of staff and enrolled families. In addition, targeted information was gathered on participant families from parent interviews, Staff-Child Ratings, study children's teachers or home visitors, individual interviews with those teachers and home visitors, and observations of study children's classrooms and home visits. At ages 2 and 3 researchers conducted direct child assessments to measure cognitive and language development and record their interactions with their parent. Exit interviews were conducted with parents of children who left the program before their eligibility ended. For those (in the 1-year-old Cohort only) who stayed until age 3, a matriculation interview was conducted at age 3 and a half to learn where they went after Early Head Start. Finally, researchers collected weekly information from program staff on services offered and received by study families while enrolled in Early Head Start.
  • Methods

    ICPSR data undergo a confidentiality review and are altered when necessary to limit the risk of disclosure. ICPSR also routinely creates ready-to-go data files along with setups in the major statistical software formats as well as standard codebooks to accompany the data. In addition to these procedures, ICPSR performed the following processing steps for this data collection: Performed consistency checks.; Checked for undocumented or out-of-range codes..
  • Methods

    Response Rates: Of the 89 programs recruited into the study, there was a consent rate of 93.7 percent. Within those programs the researchers approached families of children in the age cohort windows and obtained consent from 88.5 percent of them (976 of 1,103). The initial sample consisted of 80 percent 1-year-old Cohort members and 20 percent Newborn Cohort members. The consent rate within cohorts was similar: 88.8 percent for the 1-year-old Cohort and 87.4 percent for the Newborn Cohort.

Sampling
The Baby FACES sample is representative of the population of Early Head Start programs at the national level. Within programs, the families being served by Early Head Start represent the population of parents of newborn and 1-year-old children enrolled in Early Head Start in spring 2009. To achieve the goal of an efficient, representative national sample of sufficient size to detect developmental or programmatically meaningful differences over time and within key subgroups, the researchers used a stratified clustered sample design. All children receiving center and/or home-based services from a probability sample of 89 Early Head Start programs (including those receiving services through partnership arrangements) were chosen. The most recent Head Start Program Information Report data was used as a sampling frame, which at the time of sampling covered program year 2006-2007. Consent rate for programs was 93.7 percent. In spring 2009, 1,217 children were selected into the Baby FACES sample. From this sample, 109 children were ineligible for the study, and 132 eligible children's parents did not consent to participate in the study. Therefore, there were 976 children in the study at baseline. By spring 2010, the researchers obtained consent for six additional children, but consent was rescinded for three 1-year-old Cohort children who were part of the baseline sample. Children who left the Early Head Start program from which they were sampled were considered no longer eligible at follow-up, and this was by far the main driver of sample attrition over time. There were 971 children who had parental consent at the end of the study and who were eligible for at least one round of data collection.
