This paper documents facts about labor force participation and child care enrollment decisions of married females in West Germany. In line with the facts for a cross-section of OECD countries, a special emphasis is put on the level relationship between maternal labor force participation and child care enrollment. A calibrated life-cycle model is used to evaluate the quantitative impact of providing (subsidized) child care on maternal labor force participation and fertility.
