Day-care attendance has been associated with an increased risk of hospitalization for lower respiratory tract illnesses (LRIs).
This study examines, in a health maintenance organization population of children, the associations between child day care and the occurrence of LRIs in the first 3 years of life.
Smoking by caregivers and a possible protective effect of longer day-care enrollment in relation to LEIs are also addressed.
Information on day-care arrangements was elicited from 1006 parents of infants for five age intervals in the first 3 years of life: birth through 3 months, 4 to 6 months, 6 to 12 months, 1 to 2 years, and 2 to 3 years.
