National Workforce Registry Alliance 2017 Dataset Executive Summary Released

The National Workforce Registry Alliance is pleased to announce the release of the executive summary of the 2017 Dataset Report for the Early Childhood Workforce.

The 2017 report is the third bi-annual report from the Alliance that highlights the characteristics, educational qualifications, and wages of the early childhood and school-age workforce using administrative data from 11 registries around the country including The Nevada Registry! The findings in the dataset report continue to closely mirror findings from nationally-representative surveys like the National Survey of Early Care and Education and reinforces the value of the accurate and timely data that is available to the 39 states with established workforce registry systems. The featured analysis for 2017 focuses on the characteristics of professionals working with school-age children and changes in employment status for all workers between 2015 and 2017. 

Nevada's ECE workforce data is included in the dataset report for the very first time as a result of achieving Partnership Eligibility Review (PER) through the National Workforce Registry Alliance. PER is a process which provides quality assurance for data aggregated in the Alliance dataset. Nevada is one of only 14 states and regions which have successfully achieved PER status through the Alliance to date.  

The full report is extensive and will be released in smaller sections focused on topical areas early in 2018. For now, enjoy the Executive Summary
