Losing ground: How child care impacts Louisiana's workforce productivity and the state economy

Resource Type: Reports & Papers

Publisher(s): Policy Institute for Children (Louisiana)
Description: Although a wealth of research has focused on benefits for young children and local communities, less attention has been given to the benefits of quality ECE for employers and working parents. To date, we have been unable to locate Louisiana-based studies of how child care instability affects the state's workforce productivity. This study attempts to address this gap. This study was conducted in two phases. First, the Louisiana Policy Institute for Children worked with Louisiana State University's (LSU) Public Policy Research Lab, which conducted a statewide survey of households with children age 4 and under, asking these individuals a series of questions investigating the intersection between their workforce participation and child care issues. Second, the Policy Institute worked with an economist to estimate the economic impact of child care instability based on the results from the LSU survey conducted in phase one. (author abstract)
