Child Care Market Rate Survey Project: Oregon Resource and Referral Administrative Data Update, 2006

Resource Type: Data Sets
Author(s): Grobe, Deana; Pratt, Clara C.; Weber, Roberta B. (Bobbie);
Date Issued: 2009
Publisher(s): Inter-university Consortium for Political and Social Research
Description: This survey was one strategy used to collect child care market price data. Comparing findings garnered from different methods allows one to evaluate whether different data collection methods produce different price findings (convergent validity) and how well these data collection methods represent the child care market (criterion-related validity). These data can also be used to explore several validity issues of concern with market price studies. The major areas of investigation in this survey include child care prices by type of care, geographic location, and price mode (hourly, daily, weekly, monthly). Other areas of investigation include capacity by age group, additional fees facilities charge, whether they care for subsidized children, and what affects the prices that they charge parents.
