Needs Assessment

In 2019, Nebraska conducted a statewide early childhood needs assessment that engaged stakeholders from communities across the state. In addition to identifying and analyzing existing early childhood data  and reports, the needs assessment team gathered state-level, regional, and local data by conducting surveys, focus groups, and interviews with stakeholders across Nebraska. These data collection efforts included the following:

  • Statewide Surveys with Families and Early Childhood Care and Education Providers
  • Focus Groups with Families
  • Interviews and Surveys with Key Informants
  • Stakeholder Meetings

These data collection and analysis efforts focused on understanding Nebraska’s resources, characteristics, strengths, challenges, and needs related to all aspects of the state’s early care and education system.
