Future Trends Affecting Day Care and Preschool Education. Final Report: Part VIII.
Two facts based on empirical data provide the focus of this report: (1) the number of women who use day care services will increase; and (2) young adults have more positive attitudes toward day care and related issues than do older adults. The demographic characteristics related to the participation of women in the labor force and possible changes in those characteristics are discussed, and two figures present data, as of March 1970, concerning labor force participation rates of married women by education, husband's income, and number and age of children. Attitudes related to the use of day care, past, present, and future, are then described. The final section of the report discusses demographic trends in enrollment in preschool educational programs. Three appendixes to the report provide tables and graphs of data related to A. Relationships of Various Factors to the Participation of Women in the Labor Force; B. Changes in the Factors; and C. Present Attitudes Toward the Use of Day Care. (For related documents, see PS 005 969-977, 979-983.) (AL)
