Definitions: The number of regulated child care slots, including slots in licensed full-time child care centers and in certified family child care homes, per 100 children under age 6 with both parents in the workforce, multiplied by 56.5% (the percentage of employed mothers using non-relative care, according to the Census Bureau's Survey of Income and Program Participation, Spring 1999).

Data Source: Rhode Island Department of Children, Youth and Families; U.S. Census Bureau

Footnotes: Data represent the number of slots as of December 31st of each year. Beginning with 2002 data, the denominator is the number of children under age 6 with both parents in the workforce, multiplied by the percentage of parents using non-relative care, according to the Census Bureau's Survey of Income and Program Participation, Spring 1997 and Spring 1999. This is an update of the methodology used in previous years.
