Definitions: Percent of mothers who report types of barriers to child care for their 3-year-old among mothers who prefer another type of child care other than what they are doing now.

Mothers of 3-year-old children were asked if they would prefer to use a type or place of child care other than what they were currently doing, even if they did not have child care arrangements at the time.  During 2015-2016, 82% of the mothers answered "No" and 18% answered "Yes."   Only those who answered "Yes" were asked to identify one or more common barriers to the child care they sought.
