Child policy partnership: Opening and closing of early care and education establishments

The stability of early care and learning centers is important for understanding the supply of such care. If there is excessive activity in terms of openings and closings of establishments, there may be an impact on children and families as they search for new early care and education. Openings and closings may also signal inexperienced owners, difficult economic situations, costs of regulation and more. This policy brief documents the opening and closing of early care and education establishments using Georgia Department of Labor Quarterly Census of Employment and Wages (QCEW ES202) data. These data report quarterly wages paid to employees by establishments. Addresses are included for the establishments. These data are well suited to measure rates of openings and closings for specific industries, including early care and education. (author abstract)
