California Market Rate Survey
This survey collects information about your center’s child care rates, the number of children you serve, and information about your center’s costs. The data is used to calculate the reimbursement rates for providing child care services in your area.
This survey is voluntary. As you are completing the survey, you can choose not to answer any particular question. If you choose not to complete the survey, this will not impact your eligibility to participate in programs sponsored by the state of California.
Your answers are confidential and will be used only to calculate the reimbursement rates for providing child care services in your area. Your responses will not be compiled in a way that someone could identify your answers. The California Department of Social Services has contracted with an independent research organization, the American Institutes for Research (AIR), to conduct this survey.
If you have any questions about the survey, please contact AIR at 650-376-6309 or by e-mail at CAMarketRateSurvey@air.org.
