Description: To better understand whether the geographic location of the ECE workforce might be associated with variations in well-being, Child Trends examined differences in Arkansas's ECE workforce by region and by urbanicity. Measures of well-being were derived from a comprehensive statewide ECE workforce survey. For this study, Child Trends partnered with the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences (UAMS). The purpose of this brief is to examine specific characteristics of the ECE workforce to see whether they vary across the state of Arkansas. The brief addresses two main questions: 1. Does the ECE workforce in Arkansas vary by region or by urbanicity with respect to what teachers and caregivers report about their well-being, the economic pressures they face, and their education levels? 2. What factors do stakeholders believe might contribute to variation in the characteristics of well-being, economic pressures, and education levels within the ECE workforce across Arkansas?
