This is the fourth national survey on the direct-care workforce developed by PHI and NCDHHS. Surveys were sent to all state Medicaid agencies and state Units on Aging in September 2003; some surveys were redirected to a more appropriate state entity for completion. Completed surveys were received between October and December 2003; clarification was sought as needed. Responses were received from 44 states, representing an 88% response rate.
A summary of results from the 2003 survey is available in Table 1 and detailed comments are described in Table 2. A snapshot of each state’s existing or enacted direct-care worker initiatives is presented in individual charts in Appendix A, reflecting information collected from this and prior national surveys conducted by PHI and NCDHHS. New information provided from the 2003 survey is reflected in bold type.
Data Caveat: All analyses and percentages reported are based on the 44 states responding to this survey.
