The Economic Impact and Profile of Connecticut’s ECE Industry

Back • Publication Date: September 1st, 2004

With a workforce that employs more people than the state’s pharmaceutical industry, Connecticut’s early care and education (ECE) industry should be given at least the same status as transportation, utilities and housing when considering the state’s essential economic health. So says an impact study by the Connecticut Center for Economic Analysis (CCEA) at the University of Connecticut. A brochure summarizing this report, commissioned by CT Voices for Children, The Child Health and Development Institute of Connecticut (CHDI) and the CT Association for Human Services, is also available.
