The excess demand for subsidized child care in Germany

Katharina Wrohlich ()

Applied Economics, 2008, vol. 40, issue 10, 1217-1228

Abstract: The extension of publicly provided or subsidized child care is currently one of the priorities of the political agenda in many European countries. In this article, the excess demand for subsidized child care slots in Germany is estimated using a partial observability model. The results show that there is considerable excess demand for child care for children aged less than 3 years in East and West Germany, even among children with working mothers.
