 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;
