New Infographic Focuses on Child Care

Child care arrangements is a significant issue for employed parents, their relatives, care providers, policy makers and anyone concerned about children. A new "How Do We Know?" infographic, "Child Care: An Important Part of American Life," uses results from the 2011 Survey of Income and Program Participation and 2007 Economic Census to show how many children (by age) are in some type of arrangement, the kinds of arrangements they are in, the amount spent on care, and how child care facilities are distributed across the country. How Do We Know? Infographics: <http://www.census.gov/how/>.
