Background Checks Estimator

This tool was designed when the NBCP was initiated to help States estimate how many background checks they would need to conduct per year. Analysts gathered statistics available at the time to help States plan for the number of applicants that might seek employment with the nine types of long term care facilities and providers named in the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010. Though this information is now dated, we provide this tool for historical purposes, as a guide to the information available to each State. Instructions are included — they can be found in the first tab of the tool spreadsheet. State-specific staff information should be entered into the tool, if such information is available.

Please email if you would like to discuss how you might receive technical assistance to update your State’s data
