CLASP recently provided an analysis of the U.S. Census Bureau’s Who’s Minding the Kids? Child Care ArrangementsSpring 2010. One highlight of the analysis includes:

  • Working poor mothers with children under age 15 pay about 40 percent of their monthly income on child care expenses, a dramatic increase from the 25.7 percent they paid for child care in 2002. Families earning more than 200 percent of poverty paid just under 7 percent of their monthly income toward child care expenses in 2010, compared to 6.5 percent in 2002.
