The 2007 National Home Health Aide Survey is the first national probability survey of home health aides.
LeadingAge Center for Applied Research, in partnership with Social and Scientific Systems, Inc. (SSS), will be conducting analyses using this survey to provide technical assistance and policy analysis to the Office of the Assistant Secretary for Planning and Evaluation (ASPE).
The goals of the analyses are to describe workforce characteristics and to evaluate the interrelationships among workforce characteristics, job quality, and other worker and facility characteristics and quality of care.
The goal of analyses underpinning the "Workforce Characteristics" report is to understand the supply of workers by demand, geographic location, policy variation, agency characteristics, and recruitment strategies.
The team will prepare reports and manuscripts with results from these analyses.
This project is funded by ASPE and the Center is a subcontractor to SSS.
