The 2019 National Survey of Early Care and Education (NSECE) is a coordinated set of four nationally representative surveys aimed at describing the early care and education (ECE) landscape in the United States, including the use and availability of care. Information was collected from individuals and programs providing ECE in center-based and home-based settings to children age birth through five years, and from households with children under age 13.
The 2019 NSECE instruments are comprised of four questionnaires:
- Household Questionnaire
- Home-based Provider Questionnaire
- Center-based Provider Questionnaire
- Classroom Staff (Workforce) Questionnaire
This document includes the Center-based Provider Questionnaire for the 2019 NSECE. It includes a summary table listing topical areas of focus, constructs with associated page numbers, and key changes from the 2012 NSECE Center-based Provider Questionnaire, followed by individual questions asked of survey participants.
The 2019 instruments serve as a resource for stakeholders interested in understanding the exact questions asked of NSECE participants.
Key Findings and Highlights
Center-based Provider Questionnaire topics include:
- Center-based Provider Screener
- Program Level Information
- Schedule and Rates
- Care Provided
- Respondent Characteristics and Selection of the Workforce
This document includes the Center-based Provider Questionnaire for the 2019 NSECE that was used to collect data from center-based ECE programs drawn from state and national lists of providers as well as to generate the Classroom Staff (Workforce) questionnaire.
Data were collected electronically or through in-person interviews from January 2019 through July 2019.
Researchers interested in more information about definitions, sampling methodology, and construction of variables may access resources, including codebooks and data sets at the Child and Family Data Archive. Data sets and codebooks are expected to be available in the fall of 2020.
