The aim of the three projects was to demonstrate the value that data linking can add in terms of developing a far richer evidence base to support policy development and evaluation. Also to provide a suite of reports exploring how ambitious we could be in seeking to maximise the use of existing data for Wales.
This project linked multiple health data sets with the National Pupil Database and flagged households containing an eligible child (0-3 years). As well as a set of control cases, in order to identify any differences in health and educational outcomes for Flying Start families compared with the ‘Next Most Deprived’ families.
