Early On Data

There are data collection profiles for 56 service areas and for the State as a whole. Counts are those provided by the service area for the named collection. When a count is five or less, the count and percent are “masked” (**) for confidentiality purposes. The percent for Snapshot, Period, and Age counts are “percent served” based on Michigan birth data. The percent for other variables shows the percent for a specific code within the variable. So, for example, the sum of percents for the Home, Community Based, and Other codes in the Setting variable is 100%.

The counts for Indicators 6-Percent Served Birth-3, 5-Percent Served Birth-1, and 2-Natural Setting in the Annual Performance Report (APR) and the 618 Data Tables submitted to OSEP are based on the Fall (October) collection. The APR calculations for compliance indicators 1-Timely Start of Service, 7-Timely Initial IFSP, 8a-Transition IFSP, and 8c-Transition Conference use the School Year report, which merges records from the Fall, Spring and End of Year collection for the given school year. The APR calculations for Indicator 3 are based on the School Year report plus all prior Initial IFSP entries. Indicator 4 values are based on family surveys. The counts and percentages for Indicators 3 and 4 are provided by Early On grantee Wayne State University and are only shown for June data profiles. Ranks are all done with 1 for the largest percent and 56 for the smallest. Ties in ranks (these mostly occur when many service areas have 0% or 100%) are settled by highest number of children served, then by lowest ISD code.

There are Single Collection and Trend views of Rankings for specific variables. Select the Rankings button in the upper right corner to access the Ranking selection screen. Select the Profiles button to return. Variables in the dropdown that have no Rank in the Profiles will be blank in the Ranking screen.
