Price and Quality in Child Care Choice: A Revision

Abstract

In Hofferth and Wissoker (1992) we estimated the effects of price and quality on mode of child care chosen. We found large negative effects of price and quality on choice. This paper presents a revised version of our original model. The new results suggest negative price effects that are smaller than those in the original paper. The estimated effects of child/staff ratios also become less negative, and one becomes positive. (Journal of Human Resources 31(3), June 1996.)
