The Invention of Day Care How “researchers” and reporters, shrinks and bureaucrats have used their own personal choices and lots of wishful thinking to create the sad myth of “good” day care.  By Tom Zoellner, Reprinted from Men's Health Magazine, September 1999
So what did (Elizabeth) Harvey do? The data Harvey analyzed came from the National Longitudinal Survey of Youth (NLSY)...(originating) the late study the workforce (a completely different topic than daycare).
Much of the information came from surveys*: (other) Researchers simply interviewed people every few years about how well their lives were going and how their kids were doing, among other things. 
The result is statistics heaven, a hot kitchen of cooking numbers, where anybody can go to prove anything he wants to prove.

...The sample Harvey obtained from the NLSY certainly wasn’t a snapshot of middle-class America (it was biased as follows):
  • The sample’s average family income was … half the national norm.

  • Half of the sample belonged to a (underprivileged) minority group.

  • A significant number of the mothers were single mothers.

  • The emotional assessment of the children wasn’t based entirely on scientific testing. A good portion of it was based on what the children’s mothers told the government interviewers.

  • The mothers’ median IQ was (below average) in the low to mid-80s; 100 is considered average.

  • The mothers were younger than the national average when they had their children.

*Surveys are notoriously inaccurate...Do you remember what you had for breakfast last Thursday? -- editor
