Health Care Employment Projections: An Analysis of Bureau of Labor Statistics Occupational Projections, 2016-2026

The federal Bureau of Labor Statistics biennially publishes occupational and industry employment projections for a 10-year period. Projections by sector and by occupation for the period 2016 through 2026 will be released in December 2017. CHWS will analyze these projections and summarize the most significant findings related to health care employment and health care occupations. Health care continues to be the fastest growing employment sector in the country, and employment projections specific to health care will assist stakeholders and policy makers in understanding future health workforce needs.
