Early Childhood Workforce Characteristics

The 2015 National Workforce Registry Alliance Dataset Report provides a descriptive analysis on the workforce from nine registries: Connecticut, Illinois, Miami-Dade County (FL), Maine, Missouri, Montana, New Jersey, Oklahoma, and Wisconsin. It examines the relationship of age with education level, descriptive statistics on training hours classified by the Alliance Core Knowledge Areas, the relationship between age specific Child Development Associate (CDA) credentials and wages, and the relationship between center director registry participation and staff participation

The dataset represents active registry participants as of January 1, 2013 through January 1, 2015 and includes individual records from 123,680 professionals (111,082 of whom were currently employed) working across 22,822 programs and facilities. Although school-based personnel represent important aspects of the field, because of the relatively small sample size in this dataset across all states and roles (n=6,996), the focus of this report is on the early care and education participants by program type. The following represents the findings from the 2015 National Dataset.
