CFData logo

The Child and Family Data Archive (CFData) is pleased to announce the release of data from the 2019 National Survey of Early Care and Education (NSECE) Level 1 Restricted-Use Files (ICPSR 37941). This release provides the Workforce Restricted-Use Data File.

The 2019 National Survey of Early Care and Education (2019 NSECE) is a set of four integrated nationally-representative surveys conducted in 2019 of 1) households with children under age 13, 2) home-based early care and education (ECE) providers, 3) center-based ECE providers, and 4) the center-based ECE provider workforce. Together these four surveys characterize the supply of and demand for ECE in the United States and create a better understanding of how well families' needs and preferences coordinate with providers' offerings and constraints. The NSECE surveys make particular effort to measure the experiences of low-income families, as these families are the focus of a significant component of ECE and school-age public policy.

The Level 1 Workforce Restricted-Use data file supplements the Workforce Public-Use Data File with minimal overlap of variables across the data files. To download the 2019 Public-Use Data Files visit the Data Training Resources from the NSECE.
