    Abstract

    Balancing work and family life has become one of the biggest issues in Australian social policy today. Child care is an essential tool that aids workforce and educational participation of those families that use it, employs thousands of persons within the industry, and hopefully provides an environment that is safe, educational and beneficial to our children. Relatively little research has been conducted into child care affordability and availability, leaving a gap in information for public debate and decision making. This paper aims to lessen this gap by analysing self-reported problems with child care affordability and availability within Australia using data from Wave 2 of the Household Income and Labour Dynamics of Australia (HILDA) survey.
