An Economic Analysis of Child Care Support to Low-Income Mothers.
Hosni, Dejehane A.; Donnan, Brenda
The economic impact of the provision of public child care assistance on low income families is evaluated in this report. Data from interviews and records of current and former recipients of 4C child care assistance under Title II in the Orlando Standard Metropolitan Statistical Area (SMSA) during the period 1976-1978 are examined. A brief overview of the competing hypotheses regarding public support for child care is presented in the first section, along with a procedural description of the data collection, interview format, questionnaire administration and data analysis techniques used in this study. Section 2 presents the major findings and conclusions derived from the study including the impact of the child care support program on participants' employment experience, earned income, AFDC payments, and personal attitudes. Findings related to the implementation and evaluation of the support program are also discussed. Section 3 contains a brief description of the evaluative model used in this study. In the fourth section, each of the EIGTO model determinants (environment, input, group, task, and outcome) is operationally defined and the results of the application of this model in the Orlando SMSA study are presented. Copies of the questionnaires and cover letters and several pages of data are included in the appendices. (JMB)
