Childcare in state economies

The purpose of this report is to aid policymakers and business leaders in better understanding the child care industry's role in the economy. The economic role of the industry is examined using three distinct perspectives--the traditional labor force view of child care as a means for parents to work; the child care industry's macroeconomic role in the U.S. economy; and the role played by child care in regional economic growth and development.
