Child Care Subsidy Use and the Relationship to Parental Work and Child Care Quality in Rural Communities
De Marco, Allison;
||The purpose of this project is to understand how low-income rural families use child care subsidies, the quality of care they receive, and how subsidy use is related to child outcomes and parental work conditions. The project addresses these topics with data from the Family Life Project. The research questions include: (1) What percentage of rural families who are income-eligible for subsidies and use child care take up subsidies, and do the arrangements they make differ from (a) economically disadvantaged families who do not use subsidies; (b) economically advantaged families using child care?; (2) How do the work conditions of families who take-up child care subsidies differ from those who do not? Specifically, is job quality higher and more stable (e.g. more flexible, fewer turnovers, provide benefits, higher wages, more stable work hours)?; and (3) Is context, as measured by neighborhood disadvantage and geographic isolation, related to subsidy take-up?
