Data and publications
Skills for Care is the leading source of workforce intelligence for the adult social care workforce in England.
We use the information collected in the Adult Social Care Workforce Data Set (ASC-WDS), which was previously named National Minimum Data Set for Social Care (NMDS-SC), to create robust estimates for the size of the whole adult social care sector and characteristics of the workforce. We add insight and interpretation via our workforce intelligence publications below.
