New complementary database : Leave and ECEC Policy Dimensions Dataset

LIS recently added to its complementary databases section a new dataset on Leave and ECEC policy dimensions for use with the Luxembourg Income Study Database. This dataset, assembled by Sarah L. Kostecki, includes country-level policy indicators on leave and early childhood education and care (ECEC) for 31 countries: 24 high-income countries and seven middle-income countries (Latin America) based on policy and ECEC utilization information compiled from international organizations and country-specific sources. The 21 country-level leave and ECEC policy dimension indicators in this dataset are categorized into four policy dimension groups. The indicators measure three dimensions of leave policy (generosity, gender equality, and universality) and one dimension of ECEC policy (generosity, measured by enrollment rates of children in ECEC). Four country identifier indicators are also included in the dataset for a total of 25 indicators. The year selections of the country-level policy information used to construct the indicators are from between the years 2009 to 2013.

Users can access the data and its documentation from here.
