National and State Child Care Data Overview

2023 Update

The Brief

Nearly 23 million children ages 5 and under live in the United States, with 71% living in households in which all parents work. The demand for child care – as both a workforce support and to help young children build a quality foundation for lifelong learning – is clear. BPC’s data-driven tool provides information at both the state and national levels on children and families, child care funding streams, and child care providers.

Explore the tool now by selecting your state, or scroll down for national data on children, child care funding, and providers.
