In this issue we provide detailed analysis of the social care workforce in relation to social care workers' age, gender and ethnicity to enhance understanding of how workers' profiles vary according to sector of employment and different job roles.

We aim to provide policy makers and employers with information which may enable them to employ specific strategies in recruiting and retaining workers to particular job roles within the social care sector.

The findings are based on the analysis of NMDS-SC May 2009 workers' files that contain detailed anonymised information on 362,885 employees.
