Economic impact of the early care and education industry in Georgia

This study, a collaborative effort between researchers at the University of Georgia's Carl Vinson Institute of Government and Georgia State University's Andrew Young School of Policy Studies, builds on a similar 2008 study by quantifying the daily economic activity, also called the short-term economic impact, of the early care and education industry in Georgia. The state has approximately 6,200 licensed or regulated for-profit and not-for-profit early care and education centers, family child care homes, group child care homes, prekindergarten programs, military family child care homes, Head Start sites, and military early care and education centers. Using data collected from a unique survey sent to all of these child care providers in the fall of 2014, this study focuses on the industry in the wake of the Great Recession (2007-2009). The estimates of economic impact are based on 2013-2014 financial data. (author abstract)
