Making the best use of the You Bet I Care! data sets

The You Bet I Care! (YBIC) project was the largest and most comprehensive child care study carried out in Canada to date. It produced three extensive and rich data sets which, collectively, contain extensive information about both centre-based and regulated family child care. The Childcare Resource and Research Unit, University of Toronto hosted a one-and-a-half day forum (of key participants from the child care field) in February 2002 in Toronto to discuss, identify and prioritize vital issues/questions facing child care that could be addressed by the rich data sets of YBIC.
