The Child Care and Education in Oregon: 2012 Report provides a four-page profile of children, families, and care and education across the state; one page profiles for each county; and an interactive map allowing you to see where childcare providers are and then overlay data such as diversity and household income. Libraries might use this data to identify local childcare providers serving the highest risk children (i.e. poor minorities) to target outreach to those who may benefit the most from library services.

*Be sure to read the interactive map instructions. When you open the interactive map you will see elementary schools and the childcare capacity in within their boundaries, not actual childcare providers. You will need to read the instructions to learn how to see child care providers, diversity, and income. The map works best using Chrome or Firefox browsers

*This is not 100% accurate. Childcare providers go in and out of business frequently and it is fairly common that family, friends, and neighbor childcare providers go unidentified by city, county, and state officials. The data on this map is from 2012.
