This research brief highlights findings of analyses with data from the 2001 Early Childhood Program Participation Study of the National Household Education Survey Program (NHES). It provides national estimates of child care arrangements and subsidy receipt for children ages 0 to 6 (not yet in kindergarten) by family background characteristics and examines variations in child care arrangements by subsidy receipt. Patterns in child care arrangements and subsidy receipt are also examined across three income groups: 1) in poverty (below 100 percent of the poverty line); 2) near poverty (at 100 percent to less than 150 percent of the poverty line); and 3) above poverty (at or above 150 percent of the poverty line).
