Child Care Arrangements in Urban and Rural Areas. Number of Children per Adult Provider


The number of children in care for each adult provider is sometimes used when describing the environments of care arrangements.  Figure 5 displays the mean number of children per adult care provider across several types of non-parental arrangements.  The NHES results did not show statistical differences for center programs and relatives, but did show statistical differences in these means for children receiving care from non-relatives.
