Child Care Use among Welfare Mothers: A Dynamic Analysis.
Wolf, Douglas A.; Sonenstein, Freya L.
Journal of Family Issues, v12 n4 p519-36 Dec 1991
Analyzed durability of child-care arrangements, using data from 1983-84 longitudinal survey of welfare mothers conducted in three cities. Findings indicated that family day care arrangements were least durable; however, care in a center was not more durable than care provided by a child's relatives. Only convenience, with respect to location and timing, emerged as significant correlate of durability. (Author/NB)
