Health insurance coverage of the center-based child care and early education workforce: Findings from the 2019 National Survey of Early Care and Education

Description:

Given the importance of health insurance coverage for health, social, and economic outcomes, it is vital to understand health insurance coverage among CCEE teachers. In this snapshot, we used data from the 2019 National Survey of Early Care and Education (NSECE) to compare the health insurance coverage of CCEE teachers with that of the U.S. population. We also examined variation in health insurance coverage, source of coverage, and uninsurance among center-based CCEE teachers. Finally, we examined health insurance coverage by race and ethnicity. This snapshot subdivides CCEE teachers into those who were at a public school and those who were not. We focused primarily on this latter group of CCEE teachers not co-located at a public school because community-based centers typically lack access to public funding and resources that public school-based centers likely can access. Additional research has demonstrated gaps in wages between teachers at a public school address versus not, suggesting benefits, such as health insurance also would differ among CCEE teachers at a public school address versus not.
