2019 NSECE snapshot: Child care cost burden for U.S. households with children under age 5


This NSECE snapshot examines child care and early education cost burdens for households that used regular CCEE and had at least 1 child under age 5 (0 to 59 months). Cost burdens are compared across 4 income levels (below 100% of the federal poverty level (FPL), 100-200% FPL, 200-300% FPL, over 300% FPL). Cost burdens include all CCEE expenses of the household for any child under age 13 (not just those for children under age 5). For example, for a household with a 3- and a 6-year-old, the costs for both children were added to calculate CCEE cost burden. (author abstract)
