Catalyzing growth: Using data to change child care: The year in child care: 2021 data, analysis and recommendations


In The Year in Child Care: 2021 Data, Analysis and Recommendations, we aim to: Understand how different groups of stakeholders (families, the child care workforce and Child Care Resource and Referral agencies (CCR&Rs)) have coped with child care challenges throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.; Give readers a fuller picture of child care affordability by comparing child care prices to median household income by marital status and race/ethnicity; Show how child care supply does not match with potential demand through an analysis of licensed capacity. Throughout these three sections, we will also highlight child care-related findings from other researchers over the past year. These findings will help readers better understand the current state of child care and be better equipped to push for changes to our child care system. (author abstract)
