A survey of child care arrangements for Nebraska preschool children was conducted in 1988 by the Center for Applied Urban Research (now, Center for Public Affairs Research), University of Nebraska at Omaha, under the direction of Dr. Christine Reed. The purposes of the survey were to document the characteristics of the child care arrangements used in 1988 by Nebraska parents with preschool-age children and to identify household characteristics associated with the different types of child care that parents chose.

Results from the survey were incorporated with other research data into the report, "Child Day Care Policy Issues in Nebraska" (Reed 1988). The purpose of this report is to provide a more detailed analysis and discussion of the results of that survey.
