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

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)
