Looking for something else?

If you can’t find the data you want, or have an idea about data you’d like to see, please fill out our data request form.

We’ll send a notice of receipt in about 10 business days. We may follow up with questions, clarifications, and next steps. Clear descriptions of what you would like really helps! Tell us the timeframe (e, g., calendar years 2012 through 2018), the program (e.g., Home Visiting), and any geographic focus (e.g., New London County).

Please keep in mind that pulling together a quality data set takes time, and may not always be possible.

Understand your responsibilities as a researcher

Note that OEC’s Institutional Review Board (IRB) — which operated from 2015 to 2021 — is no longer active. Please get in touch if you have questions about past IRB activities.
