Profile of State Data Capacity in 2019 and 2020: Statewide Longitudinal Data Systems (SLDS) Survey Descriptive Statistics, 2019 and 2020 Data Files

The Statewide Longitudinal Data Systems (SLDS) Survey, first administered in 2017, and asks all states and territories to provide information about the types of data that are included in their SLDSs, how they use SLDS data to inform policy, and the capacity of their SLDSs for automated linking of K–12, teacher, postsecondary, workforce, Perkins career and technical education and early childhood data. The SLDS Survey has since evolved to include reporting on data use and research capacity. This brief presents both aggregate summary statistics of SLDS capacity for the 2019 & 2020 collection and two full data files based on state-level response to the 2019 and 2020 SLDS Survey collections.
