Child care subsidies and child care choices: The moderating role of household structure
Markowitz, Anna J., 2014
Children and Youth Services Review, 36(), 230-240

A recent but growing literature has explored the implications of federally-funded child care subsidies for child well-being. While subsidies have been shown to move children into child care settings of higher observed quality, and high quality care has been associated with improved school readiness, some evidence suggests that subsidy use is associated with neutral or negative child outcomes. These findings may be explained by patterns of care choice among subsidy receiving mothers. This study investigates whether household structure moderates the association between subsidy receipt and choice of child care arrangement using samples drawn from two demographically distinct data sources: the exclusively urban Fragile Families and Child Wellbeing Study (FFCWS) and the nationally representative Early Childhood Longitudinal Study- Birth Cohort (ECLS-B). Results indicate that household structure alters the association between subsidy use and care arrangement, but the moderating role of household structure differs across the two samples. In the FFCWS, living with extended family increased the likelihood that mothers use subsidies for informal family, friend, and neighbor (FFN) care rather than center based care; in the ECLS-B, living with extended family decreased the likelihood of mothers using subsidies for informal FFN care versus center-based care. Findings suggest that household structure is an important moderator of subsidy use, but that its impact may depend on contextual and demographic factors. (author abstract)

Can we trust parental reports of child care subsidy receipt?
Johnson, Anna D., June, 2013
Children and Youth Services Review, 35(6), 984-993

In recent years, research examining determinants and consequences of the means-tested child care subsidy program (the Child Care and Development Fund [CCDF]) has grown dramatically. To measure subsidy utilization, existing studies typically rely on parent-reported measures of subsidy receipt drawn from large surveys. As the research literature on child care subsidies has grown, however, so have concerns about the trustworthiness of parent-reported subsidy use. One way to assess the quality of parent-reported subsidy use is to examine its overlap with another subsidy receipt measure, drawn from a different source. The current paper uses the Fragile Families and Child Well-Being Study (FFCWS), the only existing survey data source that contains an alternate measure of subsidy receipt -- based on child care provider report -- which permits a comparison to parent-reported measures. We find evidence that increases our confidence in the trustworthiness of parents as accurate reporters of subsidy receipt. In recognition that neither data source reflects "true" subsidy receipt, however, we conclude with a discussion of limitations and steps for future research.
