Description
  • Abstract

    The Oklahoma School Readiness Reach-by-Risk Report 2015 serves as the second publication in the series and updates data published in 2014. The Report is intended to provide policy makers and other early childhood education stakeholders with the most current data available on multiple school readiness risk factors across multiple domains, and the reach of services provided in each of the state's 77 counties. This Report is a continued effort to highlight counties whose children are at the greatest risk of starting kindergarten unprepared to learn, and counties that are underrepresented in terms of quality early childhood education and child care services. This report is divided into two main sections, Risk and Reach. The Risk section consists of an analysis of nine socioeconomic and demographic indicators found by empirical research to increase a county's risk for poor school preparedness. The Reach section assesses the county-level service density of six early childhood programs and services designed to contribute to the cognitive and social-emotional development of young children. This Report provides current data on factors that place children at risk of being unprepared for school compared to the reach of several services and programs that promote school readiness. New for 2015 is the analysis of changes in risk and reach classifications between 2014 and 2015, including risk rank percentile changes.
  • Abstract

    The purpose of the Oklahoma School Readiness Reach-by-Risk Report 2015 is to provide policy makers and other early childhood stakeholders with current data on factors that place children at risk of being unprepared for school and on the reach of services and programs that promote school readiness for each of the state's 77 counties.
  • Methods

    For each indicator, data at the state and county levels were collected from multiple secondary sources and reported as proportions of relevant populations (e.g., percent of live births to mothers with low levels of education). Data were statistically analyzed using multivariate techniques to create components, or "sets" of factors that most closely correlated with each other and that significantly explained school readiness, with third-grade reading proficiency used as a proxy of readiness. Reach was assessed by requesting data for early education programs, such as Head Start (HS), Early Head Start (EHS) and the state's universal prekindergarten program; early childhood home visitation programs, such as SoonerStart, the state's IDEA Part C - Early Intervention program; other support programs such as Reach Out and Read; and child care services.
  • Methods

    Part one is devoted to the Risk indicator data, which is comprised of 11 variables. These variables contain data about child care, early education and child social services at the county-level. The variables largely measure county percentages of enrollment rates, service totals, and quality of care ratings within several of these programs. Part two describes the Reach indicator data, which is comprised of 20 variables. These variables were assessed by requesting data for early education programs, such as Head Start (HS), Early Head Start (EHS) and the state's universal prekindergarten program; early childhood home visitation programs, such as Sooner-Start, the state's IDEA Part C Early Intervention Program; other support programs such as Reach Out and Read; and child care services. Reach data are compared to overall risk for poor school readiness for each county, which highlights counties with the greatest need for early childhood education and child care services relative to risk.
  • 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..
