The Oregon Market Price Study identifies child care prices and the geographic distribution of these prices across the state. Prices vary by several factors including the age of the child served, type of care (family child care, center, certified family care), the local supply and demand for child care, pricing modes (hourly, monthly, etc), and facilities’ perceptions of the capacity of families to pay for care. This study fulfills the federal requirement that the state complete a market price survey every two years.
