Child Care: How Do Military and Civilian Center Costs Compare?
[Technical Report, Congressional Report]
United States General Accounting Office
Pagination or Media Count:
The demand for child care has increased dramatically in the past several decades as the number of mothers who work outside the home has grown. About 39 percent of women with children under the age of 6 were in the labor force in 1975 by March 1997, that figure had risen to 65 percent. Recognizing the importance of child care arrangements to all working families, the Congress streamlined federal programs in 1996 and increased funding in fiscal year 1997. Proposals have been introduced in the 106thCongress that address the affordability and quality of care. An important question underlying these proposals is how much high-quality child care costs.
