Pages13 pp.
DescriptionThis paper uses a number of benchmarks to gauge the affordability of child care across the country, and compares child care costs to state minimum wages and public college tuition. Finally, to determine how child care costs differ by location and family composition, the paper reconstructs budgets for two-parent, two-child families in 10 locations to include the higher cost of infant care, compares these families' child care costs to those of families without infants, and compares costs for both family types with metro area median incomes.
