The State Chart Book On Wages For Personal Care Aides, 2000-2010, prepared by PHI, provides information on the wages received by Personal Care Aides (PCAs) in all 50 states, the District of Columbia and the nation over a decade-long period.

This updated resource provides a state-by-state look at trends in wages for PCAs, the fourth fastest-growing occupation in the country, and a key job title within the direct-care workforce. Prepared as a resource guide on wages for advocates and policymakers concerned with the direct-care workforce, the data underscore the problem of low wages for PCAs, factors which contribute to workforce instability and near-poverty incomes for this high-demand workforce.
