DEFINITIONS & SOURCES

COLLAPSE

Definitions: The median annual cost of child care in a Class A child care center.

Data Source: Agenda for Children's analysis of data from the "Louisiana Child Care Market Rate Survey 2005," "Louisiana Child Care Market Rate Survey 2007," "Louisiana Child Care Market Rate Survey 2009,"  "Louisiana Child Care Market Rate Survey 2010," and  "Louisiana Child Care Market Rate Survey 2012," which were produced by Care Solutions, Inc. and the Louisiana Department of Children and Family Services. The full reports are available from the Care Solution's web site.

Footnotes: Because data is not available at the parish level, this data reflects the median cost of child care in that parish's DCFS region. The annual cost was determined by multiplying the median weekly weekday rate by 52 to provide an estimate of the cost of full-time, year-round care. Note that the median cost is that point at which half of the child care centers in that region are more expensive, and half are less expensive.
