Mathematica has launched a new five-year descriptive study of Early Head Start, the Early Head Start Family and Child Experiences Survey (Baby FACES 2018), to guide program technical assistance, management, and policy.

Mathematica conducted five-year studies of the 2006 and 2009 FACES cohorts, and, for the most recent study (2014-2018), redesigned FACES to provide key data more rapidly and with greater frequency and to help researchers examine more complex issues and topics in greater detail and efficiency.
