Economic Census Data provides periodic and comprehensive data about service establishements and their activities. Data for three main types of child care establishments are provided: (1) nonemployer businesses (e.g. family daycare); (2) establishments with an employee payroll that pay income taxes (e.g. ,a for profit child care center); and (3) establishements with an employee payroll that are tax-exempt (e.g. a non-profit based center). The Economic Census Data is conducted every 5 years, for years ending in "2" and "7".
