Abstract

Pay in the care sector forms a cornerstone of debates about social care and many researchers have argued that continued low pay has contributed to the care sector's position within the secondary labour market. The aim of this issue is to provide the most accurate possible information on different pay scales for different jobs performed within the care sector in England. It explores trends and variations in pay level, during 2009, in relation to different macro and micro level characteristics. The analysis uses pay data extracted from the National Minimum Data Set for Social Care (NMDS-SC) database up until the end of 2009 providing information on 108,745 adult social care workers.
