Estimating Changes in the Supply of and Demand for Child Care in Philadelphia (2021)

Topic Education

In 2014, with support from The William Penn Foundation, Reinvestment Fund conducted an initial analysis of the supply of and demand for child care in Philadelphia to identify areas of the city where targeted investments could help address shortages of high-quality child care. Now in its eighth update, Reinvestment Fund’s 2021 childcare analysis provides updated estimates to track the change over time in the supply of, demand for, and shortages in child care.

This report presents the results of descriptive and spatial analyses of the child care landscape in Philadelphia in 2021 as the economy was beginning to re-open. It details both short- and long-term changes in the supply of, demand for, and gaps in care; the year-to-year changes from 2020 to 2021, as well as shifts since the first analyses were conducted in 2014.

The series of reports, including the most recent, are available as the reports are published.
