The PHI State Data Center, the first web-based tool to provide comprehensive, state-by-state profiles of the direct-care workforce, is now live at the PHI PolicyWorks website.
The PHI State Data Center profiles nursing home aides, home health aides, and personal care assistants (including direct support professionals) in every state. It provides easy-to-read charts with up-to-date, key direct-care workforce statistics, which can be easily downloaded and reproduced, featuring information on:
* workforce size and projected employment growth
* trends in wages for each direct-care occupation, and
* information on health insurance coverage rates and reliance on public assistance.
The state data on wages, benefits, and occupational growth are compared to all occupations in that state.
