The National ECE Workforce Dataset: What Is It, What’s In It, and Who Does It Represent?

This resource, developed by the National Workforce Registry Alliance (NWRA), provides an overview of the National Workforce Dataset, including available data and related sources, as well as FAQs (e.g., who is represented, data collection process). In an effort to strengthen the early care and education workforce, the NWRA sets data quality standards to facilitate development of an aggregate dataset based upon states’ registry data, which captures demographic, employment-related (e.g., role, compensation), career preparation, and qualification data on workforce members. In addition to an understanding of the dataset, readers will develop an understanding of the Partners in Employment Reporting and data collection and aggregation processes.
