Inter-university Consortium for Political and Social Research
||The purpose of the 2011 Child Care Licensing Study is to report two aspects of child care licensing from 2008 for all 50 states and the District of Columbia (not including Idaho): (1) state child care licensing programs and policies and (2) child care center and family child care home licensing regulations. The study focuses on the processes and policies in each state related to staffing for the licensing program, monitoring facilities, and enforcement of licensing regulations.

||(1) The child care center licensing regulations used for this study are those that were posted on the National Resources Center for Health and Safety in Child Care (NRC) Web site between January 1, 2011, and December 31, 2011. The same Web site was used to collect licensing regulations covering the topics listed for small family child care homes and large/group family child care homes. More information on the study is located at the National Association for Regulatory Administration's Web site. (2) The data in this collection has been organized in a way designed to reflect the existing structure presented in the Child Care Licensing Survey Final Report and on the NARA Web site. (3) Users should note that due to limitations in SAS, Stata, and SPSS, variables containing open-ended/qualitative data (greater than 250 characters) are available in Microsoft Excel format only. (4) Upon conversion from the original Microsoft Access database, some formatting was not retained. (5) No data is available for Idaho. Idaho does not have child care licensing at the state level. (6) The State Profiles and Final Report are no longer being produced for this series. They are being replaced by three Research Briefs (forthcoming). (7) Due to statistical package limitations, set up files for Stata and R were not produced for the State Child Care Center Regulations Data, the State Small Family Child Care Home Regulations Data, and the State Large/Group Family Child Care Home Regulations Data.
