Snapshots from the NSECE: How are lower-income households using nonparental care for children under age 6?: An analysis of primary and combinations of care types

Share
Description:
This Snapshot uses data from the 2012 National Survey of Early Care and Education (NSECE) household survey to elucidate the types of nonparental care that lower-income households with at least one working parent are using, either solely or in combination, to care for children under age 6. [In this Snapshot, children age birth through 5, not yet in kindergarten, are referred to as children under age 6.] This Snapshot also identifies the primary type of nonparental care that lower-income households use and the extent to which children from lower-income households access center-based care. Lower-income households are defined as those with an annual income below 200 percent of the federal poverty level (FPL) and at least one working parent. (author abstract)
