Untapped potential: How childcare impacts Mississippi's state economy

Share
Description:
In this study we looked at the causes of childcare challenges as well as motivations behind why parents select various childcare providers. Knowing many employers want to facilitate more access to childcare but do not know where to begin, we sought to learn what types of childcare benefits working parents desire most from employers. The results confirm that although many Mississippi parents are enrolled in postsecondary education or training programs, childcare challenges often cause those parents to postpone their coursework or miss out on these opportunities entirely.
