Comparing Potential Demand for Nontraditional-Hour Child Care and Planned Policies across States

This brief presents comparative state data that estimates potential demand for child care for families who work nontraditional hours (NTH) — on weekends and anytime outside 7:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m., Mondays through Fridays. Tables in the brief compare the share of children under 6 with NTH working families, children with NTH low-income parents, Black and Latino children with NTH working parents, children with NTH working parents with educational attainment at or below a high school diploma, and children with an NTH working single parent. The brief also includes a chart of state planned activities to increase the supply of NTH child care.
