Researchers identified the importance of child care subsidies for low-income families and children, and the need for comparable research that increases our understanding of families' experiences with child care subsidies and the influence of policy differences across states on the continuity of subsidy participation.
Researchers developed a detailed description of a commonly endorsed methodology to answer questions of continuity of subsidy receipt using longitudinal, administrative data on child care subsidies.
