Interim Status Report on Research on the Outcomes of Welfare Reform. Child Care


Figure A-5 shows that most (12) of the grantees proposed including survey questions about the child care used by families after they leave welfare.  Typical questions focus on the type of provider used, the parents’ awareness and use of subsidies and child care costs.  Half (7) of the grantees also ask parents about their perceptions of child care quality.  In addition, six grantees are linking TANF records to the state or county subsidized child care data system, as another source of information about the type and cost of care, as well as the use of subsidies.
