Tell me about this report...
The information shown in this dashboard is from Skills for Care's weighted workforce estimates.
Data collected in the NMDS-SC is used to create workforce models which, in turn, allow for estimates of the whole adult social care workforce to be produced. This means that the analysis can be representative of all adult social care workers even if the NMDS-SC has uneven levels of data coverage.
You can read more information about the data on our website.
