Department of Labor Publishes Thirty-Day PRA Notice for “National Childcare Costs Database”
The Department of Labor today (July 11) has published the thirty-day PRA notice for the National Childcare Costs Database information collection.
The creation of a comprehensive and publicly available data source for childcare prices will provide a more comprehensive picture of the cost of childcare at the local level in the United States. Because data are collected within local areas, childcare prices will more accurately reflect the prices parents pay in the market, rather than estimates derived from state averages. This data source will be used to show how, who, and where childcare prices are impacting labor force participation, and allow government agencies, practitioners, and policymakers to more accurately measure potential economic impacts and identify strategies for enhancing employment options and economic security for women.
The Office of Management and Budget will consider all comments it receives by August 12.
