Childcare prices as a share of median family income by age of children and care setting


Childcare prices are derived from each state’s childcare Market Rate Survey. Prices are median yearly prices for one child at the market rate. Childcare prices are based on the 2016-2018 data collection cycle and are presented in 2018 and 2022 real dollars using the CPI-U for child care (day care and preschool in the U.S. city average). Economic and demographic data are obtained from the 2014-2018 American Community Survey to correspond to the 2016-2018 childcare price data. (author abstract)
