Workforce annual pay rates
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. 
Help and guidance
Information in this dashboard is from Skills for Care's weighted workforce estimates and includes the local authority and independent sectors only. Jobs within the NHS or for direct payment recipients are not included in these workforce estimates.
  • Please note that information has been rounded and may not sum to the totals.
  • Independent sector information covers the pay period April 2016 to March 2018.
  • Local authority information is correct as at September 2017. 
  • Full-time equivalents (FTE) are calculated based on 37 or more contracted hours a week being classed as 1 full-time equivalent job. If an individual works less than 37 hours per week, their hours worked are used to calculate what their annual salary would be if they were full-time.
