Information on the Nevada Children’s DataCenter comes from two types of sources.
National Data Sources are both governmental and non-profit national organizations who gather, analyze, or report information related to children both nationally and, sometimes, on the state level. If you have a source of national data that is not listed that you think would be useful to people in Nevada, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The success of our website depends on organizations contributing the important information they collect about Nevada’s Children to the DataCenter. Our goal is to collect and store as much information as possible about Nevada’s children in one publicly available place. We are interested in any data that your organization already collects about Nevada’s children. The main categories of data are demographics, early care and education, family, health, housing, K-12 education, nutrition, poverty, and safety. Most organizations provide us with de-identified databases or reports that they already use for other purposes and do not have to create anything new.
Additionally, we require all organizations that contribute data to sign or opt out of a Data Sharing and Non-Exclusive Copyright License Agreements. The Data Agreement is available to make sure that your agency understands where the data will be stored, individual privacy protections, and how the data will be used. If your agency does not need to sign a data agreement but would still like to have data posted on our website, please let us know.
If your agency would like to contribute data to the Nevada Children’s DataCenter please follow these steps:
- Fill out and sign the Data Sharing and Non-Exclusive Copyright License Agreement or send an email stating that your organization does not require completing this form.
- Fill out the data cover sheet for each report or database with de-identified information and email the information to email@example.com and we will convert the data into pdf format and make it available on our website.
