New longitudinal Deaf-Blind Child Count files available
National Child Count
We have just posted new data files on the NCDB website. They can be found under the Group Materials Tab on the National Child Count group page.
Selected variables in the Annual Deaf-Blind Child Count have been organized into data excel files. Each file contains data at the state/project level for each of the past 6 years (2007-2012), essentially combining data from the annual reports into a single file. Included here are files for:
Part B Disability Categories
ECSE (3-5) Education Settings
School Age (6-21) Education Settings
Part C Exiting
Part B Exiting
Each file is set up by state, by year. You can download and save these files and then use them as you wish.
If you have questions or would like some assistance with these files, please contact Mark Schalock

Let me know what you think about presenting child count data this way. Is it helpful? Could it be presented in other ways? How else would you like to see the Deaf-Blind Child Count data organized and made available?
