Definition:

Estimated percentage of children ages 0-12 with parents in the labor force for whom licensed child care spaces are. The percentages are found by comparing the total number of licensed child care spaces by an estimate of the number of children 0-12 with parents in the labor force. Children ages 0-12 with parents in the labor force include those in single-parent families with one working parent and those in two-parent families with two working parents. Due to an update in methodology, these figures may differ from those in the California Child Care Portfolio. These numbers are just an estimate, as not all children in working families require licensed child care. Counties with inadequate sample size have missing data; regional counts can be found at www.kidsdata.org.
