Early educator compensation: Technical supplement: Non-representative county wage estimates in California, 2020


Our report on educator income and benefits draws on findings from the California Early Care and Education Workforce Study to report income and benefits of licensed family child care (FCC) providers and center-based early educators. Our study was designed to provide a representative sample of wages at the regional and state level only. However, we recognize that local data can be powerful for planning and advocacy purposes. In this technical supplement, we estimate wages at the county level or within groups of counties where sample sizes fall below our minimum threshold to report. The estimates in this supplement are not representative and should be interpreted with caution. The only exception to this rule is Los Angeles County, which we treated as its own region in our study design; these particular estimates meet our criteria for a representative sample, as do our other regional estimates.
