PHI State Data Center Provides Current Workforce Data
PHI recently updated the PHI State Data Center, the first web-based tool to provide comprehensive, state-by-state profiles of the direct-care workforce — one of the largest and fastest-growing workforces in the nation.
Using Current Population Survey data pooled from 2010 to 2012 and Occupational Employment Statistics from 2013, PHI has released updates to the following areas:
- trends in wages for each direct-care occupation
- information on health insurance coverage rates
- worker reliance on public assistance
The PHI State Data Center profiles the direct-care workforce — nursing home aides, home health aides, and personal care assistants (including direct support professionals) — in every state.
It provides easy-to-read, state-by-state charts with up-to-date, key direct-care workforce statistics, which can be easily downloaded and reproduced.
