The goal of this study was to increase understanding of the factors influencing child care prices and, in particular, the relationship between child care subsidy expenditures and prices. The conceptual model of a market was the basic framework for the analysis. Using methodology pioneered in California, this study used data from Oregon to analyze the influence of a number of economic, demographic and policy variables on child care prices. The results were then compared to earlier studies in California and Minnesota.
