The Mixed Preschool Market: Explaining Local Variation in Family Demand and Organized Supply.
Edwards, John H. Y.; And Others
Economics of Education Review, v15 n2 p149-61 Apr 1996
Explores supply-and-demand factors by combining a 100-county sample of independent preschools with 1990 census data. Price negatively affects hours demanded. More hours are purchased in poorer counties with more black single parents and rapid population growth. Center accreditation significantly increases demand, but depresses supply. Public provision crowds out number of private hours used. (28 references) (MLH)
