These databases support the regulatory compliance theory of diminishing returns by clearly demonstrating in the studies conducted utilizing these data the plateau effect with regulatory compliance data when compared to program quality data in early child care and education programs. These studies were conducted between 2013 and 2021. These studies demonstrate the significance of substantial regulatory compliance and the impact it has on making licensing decisions. These studies support the use of differential monitoring, key indicators and risk assessment methodologies.
