Are families that are knowledgeable about QRIS more likely to have children enrolled at a program site with a QRIS rating than families with no knowledge of the QRIS?

Data Elements

Parent Opinions, Preferences and Decision-Making about Early Care and Education

Program Site

Quality Rating and Improvement System (QRIS)

General Analysis Recommendations

Use the categories in the data element Parent Awareness of the QRIS to create two groups of parents, “Parent does not recognize the name of the QRIS” and “Parent recognizes the name of the QRIS.” For the sub-group of parents that are knowledgeable about the QRIS: divide the number of parents that have children enrolled in a program site (Program site ID) that is participating in the QRIS (QRIS Participation History) by the total number of parents with children at all program sites. For the sub-group of parents that has no knowledge of the QRIS: divide the number of parents that have children enrolled in a program site (Program site ID) that is participating in the QRIS (QRIS Participation History) by the number of parents with children enrolled in a QRIS program site by the total number of parents with children at all program sites. Compare the percentages between these two groups (knowledgeable about the QRIS, no knowledge) for differences.
