ine,  evaluate  and  make recommendations concerning the availability of

particular  attention  to  the impact of the lack of necessary child day
care upon the ability of working families  to  achieve  self-sufficiency
and a better standard of living.
  The  office of children and family services shall direct its attention
to:
  (a) establishing an inventory of child day care for  working  families
and those at or near poverty;
  (b)  identifying child day care shortage areas on a regional basis and
providing projections of the future demand of the next five to ten years
for child day care based on the regional  birth  rates,  employment  and
population growth rates;
  (c)  comparing on a statewide and regional basis, the demand for child
day care services over the  succeeding  five  to  ten  years,  including
whether the projected growth rate in the child day care industry will be
sufficient to meet such future needs;
  (d)  offering recommendations to the department of labor and any other
relevant agencies as to how the labor force can help meet the  projected
shortage;
