Definitions: The percentage of households with children under 12 who reported that at least one child in the household was unable to attend daycare or another childcare arrangement at some time in the past 4 weeks because of the coronavirus pandemic. Only respondents who provided a yes or no response are included. Percentages by age group include all children in the household in the age group, even if there were no childcare disruptions for the child(ren) in that age group. For example, in July 21-Aug 16, 30% of households with children ages 0 to 4 experienced a disruption in childcare arrangements because at least one child under 12 in the household could not attend daycare or another childcare arrangement due to the coronavirus pandemic.
