Oregon measures structural indicators of quality for all regulated child care and education programs annually. Structural quality includes measurement of characteristics such as teacher education and training, teacher retention, and teacher compensation. Researchers think that having structural quality in place enables a program to have process quality, which in turn affects child outcomes. The 2013 data provides a snapshot of how child care and education varies across communities on some key characteristics. Reports are compiled at the level of the state and Early Learning Hub.
