Data Source: A study of 8,900 children, born in 2001, who participated in the ECLS-B
used interviews with parents and child care providers to collect data about each child's daily screen time.
We used data from the 9- and 24-month surveys of the Early Childhood Longitudinal Study-Birth Cohort (ECLS-B), a nationally-representative study of 10,700 children born in the U.S.
For example, it is not possible to identify with certainty whether non-resident fathers in the ECLS-B have had a subsequent birth.

The ECLS-B was designed to collect information from children and their families for the first time when the children were about 9 months of age (i.e., 8 to 10 months).
The ECLS-B assessment of young children's mental and physical development relies on a direct measure of children-the Bayley Short Form-Research Edition (BSF-R), which was developed for use in the ECLS-B.
The ECLS-B seeks to provide information on the care that young children receive on a regular basis from persons other than their parents.
In the base-year collection of the Early Childhood Longitudinal Study, Birth Cohort (ECLS-B
), when the children were about 9 months of age, the study interviewed parents (typically the mother), assessed children, and gathered information directly from the children's father.
The National Center for Rural Early Childhood Learning Initiatives at Mississippi State University, known as Rural Early Childhood, commissioned the nonpartisan research organization Child Trends to conduct such an analysis of the ECLS-K and ECLS-B
baseline data, focusing on selected indicators related to child and family health and socioeconomic status and children's readiness for school.
The Early Childhood Longitudinal Study, Birth Cohort (ECLS-B
) follows a nationally representative cohort of children born in 2001 from birth through first grade.
