||The Child Care Subsidy Duration was a collaboration of researchers in several states aimed at providing important information to policymakers on the duration of child care subsidy use. The research team used administrative records from state subsidy systems to build comparable linked, longitudinal datasets on children receiving subsidies, and used the data to produce descriptive information on the dynamics of child care subsidy use. The project was a multi-state study of relationships between subsidy policies, the duration of individualâ€™s subsidy use, and the duration of individual child care arrangements. The main objective was to determine the duration of child care subsidy use and to explore how subsidy duration varies by family income, ages of children, and types of child care used. Ray Marshall Center researchers conducted the Texas portion of this analysis.
