Description
  • Abstract

    The primary objective of this study was to describe current market rate survey methods, practices, and policies in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, five territories, and the 28 Native American tribes that conduct their own market rate survey. A market rate survey is a tool to collect up-to-date information on what facilities, within given geographic areas, charge parents for various types of child care. A second objective was to identify the validity issues that emerge from this comparison of current market rate survey practices. Variables are organized under six specific functions representing the market rate survey process. These were: (1) administration/organization of the market rate survey, (2) facility population and sample, (3) data collection, (4) data analysis, (5) dissemination of the results, and (6) rate setting policy.
  • Methods

    ICPSR data undergo a confidentiality review and are altered when necessary to limit the risk of disclosure. ICPSR also routinely creates ready-to-go data files along with setups in the major statistical software formats as well as standard codebooks to accompany the data. In addition to these procedures, ICPSR performed the following processing steps for this data collection: Created variable labels and/or value labels.; Created online analysis version with question text.; Performed recodes and/or calculated derived variables.; Checked for undocumented or out-of-range codes..
  • Methods

    Response Rates: Surveys describing each aspect of the market rate survey process were completed by 46 out of 50 states and the District of Columbia for a response rate of 47 out of 51 (92 percent). Two states chose not to participate, and two did not respond after mulitple contacts. One territory completed the survey, and two provided anecdotal information about how they conducted their market rate survey. Two territories did not respond to the survey after multiple contacts. Of the 28 tribes who conducted their own market rate survey, five completed the Phase 2 survey on their market rate survey practices. Tribes typically have small numbers of child care facilities and because of this we believed the survey was not relevant to the tribes who did not respond. Therefore, each of these tribes (23 in total) were called and qualitative data was collected on how they conducted their market rate survey.
