The Economic Development Effects of Early Childhood Programs
09/01/2007 - 12/01/2007
This project provided estimates of the economic development effects (the creation of jobs and earnings) of early childhood programs other than pre-K programs. At the state level, the effects involve the jobs created and earnings created for state residents by investments in early childhood programs. The project also provided estimates of the jobs and earnings for state residents created per a given dollar amount invested in early childhood programs. Researchers also provided estimates of the jobs and earnings created for a state's residents by early childhood programs that attempt to provide services at a sufficiently large scale to help all families that might need such services.
