The main article investigates child care subsidies, specifically the growing interest in child care policy, limitations, delivery systems, quality, supply, and models for research.

The article, "Implications of the 1996 Welfare Legislation for Children: A Research Perspective," addresses welfare legislation, evaluation findings and basic research, new studies, and interconnections of welfare and other policies.
