    A weighting adjustment has been applied to the Survey on Before and After School Care in Canada (SBASCC). The weights for four- and five-year-old children have been updated to reflect the proportion of four- and five-year old children attending school. Previously, the weights of four- and five-year-old children represented those attending school, as well as some who were not eligible to attend school during the reference period of the survey and were therefore not in the target population. The table and figure displaying the number of persons employed in the child care sector have been updated to remove a duplicated 'Total' column. The figure for 'Difficulty finding child care' has also been updated to match the associated table.
