The Pathways Data Dashboard includes North Carolina data on more than 60 measures of child development that research shows influence third-grade reading scores. Whenever possible, the dashboard presents data at the state level, compared to national averages; at the county or school district level; by race and ethnicity; by income; by age; and over several years

The Pathways Data Dashboard supports a statewide effort to improve the collection, analysis and use of early childhood data in NC for young children, birth to age eight. It can be used by state and local policymakers, government agencies, community service providers, child advocacy organizations, Smart Start partnerships, Campaign for Grade-Level Reading communities and others to make data-informed decisions about investments in early childhood and changes to policies and practices that affect young children and their families
