Definitions:

Subsidized children are those whose families are enrolled in Wisconsin Shares, the child care funding program. Those children also have an authorization stating the amount that the Wisconsin Shares Program will pay toward the cost of child care. Children are eligible in licensed, certified and “provisionally” certified settings.

The number of children receiving Wisconsin Shares subsidies represents an average of the number of children receiving subsidies in each month of the year. Many children do not receive subsidies for the entire year.

To calculate rates of Wisconsin Shares per 100 children in a county age zero through seven, divide the number of children receiving Wisconsin Shares subsidies by the number of children in that age group, and multiply the result by 100.
