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 in transition from temporary public assistance, to obtain quality child care so they can work, or depending on their state's policy, to 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 Office of Child Care. States are permitted to report case-level data for the entire population, or a sample of the population, under approved sampling guidelines. 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, source of income, and the family size on which eligibility is based. 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 is provided through the CCDF, the federal Head Start region the grantee (state) is in and is monitored by, and the state FIPS code for the grantee.

Children and families receiving assistance through the Child Care and Development Fund (CCDF), through their state, territory, or tribe. Smallest Geographic Unit: State
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. 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.
