This OPRE research brief provides a comprehensive analysis of ECE data that goes beyond average wages, and it notes the importance of a strong ECE workforce, pointing to the National Academy of Sciences' 2012 assertion that "the nature and effects of ECE depend in large part on the adults who care for children" (p. 5). However, the report recognizes the need for more data. Its upcoming research brief is expected to address the attitudes, orientations, morale and mental health of the ECE workforce, in addition to providing more detail on the type of education and training the ECE workforce receives.
