FRC Report, Publication No. 284, July 25, 2016, Lakshmi Pandey, Nicholas Warner and Sally Wallace
This report provides a methodology for evaluating the efficiency of the location of early care and education providers in Georgia relative to the potential need. It provides a starting point in evaluating whether certain areas are currently under-served in terms of early care and learning supply.
The purpose of this policy report is to provide a methodology so that DECAL may evaluate the efficiency of the location of the early care and education providers relative to the potential need.
Defining the location of need is difficult because there are many ways to measure need including location relative to: employment centers, residences, concentration of at-risk children, etc. As a result, the data presented in this report should be seen as a starting point in evaluating whether certain areas are currently under-served in terms of early care and learning supply. The report is structured as follows. The first section provides a summary of the method used to identify supply and demand for each Early Education Empowerment Zones (E3Z). Section two contains the
output of the analysis in tables and graphs that demonstrate supply/demand by the location of their concentration and highlights the main observations from the analysis. The final section provides
suggestions for use of the analysis as well as potential limitations.
