City Statistics: Infant day care

External childcare enables families to reconcile family responsibilities with their work commitments.

However, the data do not show, how many of the children in day care come from the respective core city. A high number of children in day care per resident children could also be explained by childcare provided for children whose parents work in a certain core city but who do not live there. This applies particularly to children in company day-childcare centers.
