AUSTRALIAN BUREAU OF STATISTICS (ABS)

NAME OF COLLECTION

The Childhood Education and Care Survey (CEaCS)

OVERVIEW

The Childhood Education and Care Survey (CEaCS) is conducted every three years as a supplement to the Labour Force Survey. Data collected includes information on formal and informal child care arrangements and early childhood education for children aged 0 to 12 years. The most recent CEaCS was conducted in 2008.

A central aim of the CEaCS is to collect information about the use of, and need for, child care for children 0 to 12 years of age with the view of establishing and monitoring changes in the way families balance work and family responsibilities.

Topics covered by the CEaCS include demographic characteristics of families, parents and children, use of child care, hours of child care used, cost of child care for specific types of care, demand for child care, early childhood education and informal learning. Information is also collected on the use of the Child Care Benefit and the income and working arrangements of parents with children 0-12 years of age. Data items within these topics are capable of being cross classified with Data Items Relevant to Migrants and Ethnicity.
