Designing and conducting your market rate survey

Whether a state conducts its own market rate survey or hires consultants to do it for them, Lead Agency staff should be involved in the design and the development of the survey. This is the second in a series of briefs addressing market rate surveys for Lead Agencies administering Child Care and Development Fund (CCDF) programs. In this brief we discuss the following: 1) data sources that can be used to conduct or augment the survey, 2) best practices for developing survey instruments, 3) selecting the survey participants, 4) the timing of the survey, and 5) how to engage the child care provider community to ensure adequate survey results.
