Staffing and occupancy - monthly tracking

This page shows the yearly estimated number of adult social care jobs trend and unweighted monthly staff change information. It also shows residential care occupancy rates each month.

  • The number of jobs for March 2013 to March 2021 are the published weighted total number of jobs for all CQC regulated adult social care independent sector employers.
  • The monthly staff change information is unweighted data from the ASC-WDS showing the change since March 2021 for those employers that have updated in each month.
  • Occupancy figures compare rates from before the height of the COVID-19 pandemic (March 2020) with data from employers updating during the pandemic.

This monthly information shouldn’t be compared to our regular annual reports. The monthly data is currently unweighted and may only reflect the characteristics of those who updated their ASC-WDS information.
