Description
  • Abstract

    This administrative dataset provides descriptive information about the families and children served through the federal Child Care and Development Fund (CCDF). CCDF dollars are provided to states, territories, and tribes to provide assistance to low-income families receiving or transitioning from temporary public assistance, in obtaining quality child care so they can work, or depending on their state's policy, attend training or receive education. The Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Act of 1996 requires states and territories to collect information on all family units receiving assistance through the CCDF and to submit monthly case-level data to the Child Care Bureau. States are permitted to report case-level data for the entire population or a sample of the population, under approved sampling guidelines. These sample files were created using the data that were current as of December 12, 2003. The Summary Records file contains monthly state-level summary information including the number of families served. The Family Records file contains family-level data including single parent status of the head of household, monthly co-payment amount, date on which child care assistance began, reasons for care (e.g., employment, training/education, protective services, etc.), income used to determine eligibility, and source of income. The Child Records file contains child-level data including ethnicity, race, gender, and date of birth. The Setting Records file contains information about the type of child care setting, the total amount paid to the provider, and the total number of hours of care received by the child. The Pooling Factor file provides state- level data on the percentage of child care funds that are provided through the CCDF.

Sampling
This sample dataset consists of monthly data provided by states that reported sample data and states that reported full population data, as well as any territory data received. Sampling of the data from states reporting full population data was done in accordance with Technical Bulletin #5, Appendix II: Annual Sampling Plan, Example A. Detailed information about this method may be found here. The month with the lowest caseload was selected for determining the sampling rate so that at least 200 samples were selected for each month. Additional information on the development of this sample dataset is provided in the accompanying technical documentation.
