California must report information to the federal government on subsidized child care and development programs to receive federal matching grant funds, and to comply with state- and federally-mandated reporting requirements. The California Department of Education, Early Learning and Care Division (CDE, ELCD) developed the CDD-801A Monthly Child Care Population Report (CDD-801A) and CDD-801B Monthly Sample Report (CDD-801B) to meet these requirements. The information collected from the CDD-801A and CDD-801B is used by state and federal legislators to develop public policy for child care and development services in California, and to request increased funds to expand child care availability in unserved and underserved areas.

The CDD-801A and CDD-801B are submitted by ELCD-contracted agencies to the ELCD via the Child Development Management Information System (CDMIS). Current ELCD-contracted agencies can log on to the CDMIS to fulfill their reporting requirements as well as to maintain and update their administrative information with the ELCD.
