Workforce issues have become a major consideration in most states and at the national level. Most states are relying on the national data as their primary source for decision-making. But, at the state level, is this best way to plan for an adequate workforce? In Ohio, two of three planned studies were conducted: a survey of all schools and a random survey of nurses. A demand survey of agencies is in progress. These studies were designed to provide much more specific information for addressing workforce issues. The results from the survey of schools and the random survey of licensed nurses (LPN and RN) produced regional differences far greater than expected and would influence state planning. Using the respondents' zip codes, analyses were completed that summated responses of subjects within a 30-mile radius of a specific facility. In other words, a health department could obtain a detailed analysis of respondents within a specified driving range. Techniques employed in the study will be discussed in detail with an emphasis on how the state-level data are more useful, thus, worth the expense of the study.
