Track data on the direct care workforce.

Monitoring the workforce helps improve it.

Consistent data on the direct care workforce helps long-term care leaders understand the size and stability of this workforce, its earnings and composition, future trends, and much more—in order to meet the continually growing demand for paid care. Yet while PHI has produced state and national data on the direct care workforce for years—providing an invaluable resource to state and national leaders—too many states lack systems to measure and track this workforce, specifically in regards to turnover and vacancy rates. Such data is essential for effectively addressing workforce shortages in this sector. Scroll through our revamped workforce data center to see how direct care workers are faring across states and to understand where gaps in data could be filled at the state and national level.
