Untapped potential: How childcare impacts Iowa'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 what stakeholders have begun to realize–despite Iowa having the highest labor force participation among all 50 states, childcare challenges, like affordability and lack of access, prevent many Iowa parents from working or pursuing education.
