12/01/2001

This section describes the extent and type of child care experienced by young school-age children in the Child Outcomes Study sample, whether used as a support for employment or not. It focuses on child care arrangements for the focal children, on how they spend time and their participation in activities. It should be kept in mind that all of the focal children were aged 8 to 10 and that all measures pertain to a very recent time period, either the past week or a recent weekday.
