The IDELA team is pleased to share a new IDELA Data Explorer update.
Save the Children is committed to data-driven investments in the lives of young children. The new IDELA Data Explorer gives the public greater access to early childhood data that can be used to inform advocacy, policy and programming. Users can choose from dozens of data sets, explore domains of child development, and see trends and relationships.
The IDELA team is working hard to finishing building this new tool. We look forward to sharing it with you at our summer launch!
Sneak peek #1 shared the global view of data sets. The picture above shows a second view of the database. A variety of filters are available for you to hone in on data of interest. You can filter dozens of data sets by location, program type, sample size, organization and year. You can see data from a peer organization, from your programming, or from a project working in the same location as you.
The domain view in the Data Explorer will allow users to look at IDELA scores by domain, like emergent literacy or social-emotional skills. But, the graphs are meant to be customized. Users can choose a specific age range, gender, and sub location. This encourages a greater understanding of nuance in the data and allows users to look at what’s most important to them.
