Measuring costs to support quality in early care and education centers
This brief, part of a series of research briefs presenting findings from a multi-case study, focuses on the cost measures. The multi-case study helped us develop draft measures and explore how well they are working to summarize implementation, estimate costs, and identify ways centers can achieve quality. The multi-case study included 30 ECE centers, 25 of which completed all the cost data collection. (author abstract)
