This report presents descriptive analyses of the early childhood and school-age workforce based upon the 2021 National Workforce Registry Alliance Dataset. Longitudinal analyses that examined changes in employment status, education, and role between the 2019 and 2021 datasets are also included. Because this study is a two-year snapshot, it does not provide reliable point-in-time data about the child care workforce supply. Those interested in supply information should work with local registries to provide more discrete, time-limited data. Like all other fields, the child care sector has suffered from historical and current inequities that have hampered the outcomes for children—particularly children of color, those with disabilities, and those whose home language is not English—as well as the workforce that serves them. Given NWRA’s commitment to advancing equity within the child care workforce, this report features two sets of analyses that examine racial/ethnic equity in the PER dataset. The first investigates the extent to which the registries’ workforce mirrors the working age (18-64) and young child (birth to five) populations. The second presents analyses that examine racial/ethnic differences in workers’ role, education, wages, and training. (author abstract)
