GURIN, ARNOLD; AND OTHERS
THE PURPOSE OF THIS PROJECT WAS TO DEVELOP AND TEST A METHOD FOR ANALYZING THE COSTS OF DAY CARE CENTERS ON A COMPARABLE BASIS. THE METHODOLOGY EMPLOYED WAS THE SELECTION OF A GROUP OF REPRESENTATIVE CENTERS IN THE BOSTON AREA AND USE OF THESE AS A TESTING GROUND. THE EMPIRICAL FINDINGS OF THE SIX CENTERS SELECTED FOR STUDY ARE ANALYZED TO PROVIDE A MEASURE OF THE GENERAL UTILITY OF THE COST ANALYSIS PROCEDURE. THESE FINDINGS ARE PRESENTED UNDER THREE GENERAL TOPICS--(1) FINDINGS BASED ON THE COST ANALYSIS INCLUDING DESCRIPTIONS OF THE SCHOOLS STUDIED AND PROBLEMS OF COMPARABILITY, (2) FINDINGS BASED ON A TIME ANALYSIS CONCERNING THE DISTRIBUTION OF SALARY COSTS ON THE PART OF PERSONNEL WHO PERFORMED THE MULTIPLE FUNCTIONS, AND (3) COST OF PROGRAMS IN RELATION TO OTHER FACTORS, INCLUDING SOCIOECONOMIC DIFFERENCES AMONG FAMILIES. RECOMMENDATIONS ARE MADE CONCERNING BOTH COST ANALYSIS PROCEDURES THEMSELVES, AND PERSONNEL POLICIES. (HW)
