2 The Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), provides national leadership in the development, distribution, and retention of a diverse, culturally competent health workforce that can adapt to the population s changing health care needs and provide the highest-quality care for all. The agency administers a wide range of training grants, scholarships, loans, and loan repayment programs that strengthen the health care workforce and respond to the evolving needs of the health care system. The National Center for Health Workforce Analysis (the National Center) informs public and private-sector decision-making related to the health workforce by expanding and improving health workforce data, disseminating workforce data to the public, improving and updating projections of the supply and demand for health workers, and conducting analyses of issues important to the health workforce.

6 INTRODUCTION The U.S. Health Workforce Chartbook provides extensive data on 35 health occupations and is part of the Health Resources and Services Administration s (HRSA s) effort to assist states, policymakers, local workforce planners, researchers, and the public in understanding the U.S. health workforce. The Chartbook may also be used as a baseline to track changes in the health workforce. While this Chartbook includes extensive data on supply, including comparative data by state, it does not include data on demand and, as such, does not address the adequacy of the supply. The 35 occupations included in this Chartbook are classified based on the U.S. government s Standard Occupational Classification (SOC) system and included more than 14 million individuals in These individuals represent approximately 10 percent of the nation s workforce. 2 The occupations included in this Chartbook also represent those with the largest current employment and those that are expected to grow substantially in the future. The vast majority of workers are employed in what the U.S. Office of Management and Budget defines as the health sector, which includes health settings such as hospitals, clinics, physician offices, and nursing homes. The health sector also includes many workers in occupations that are not considered health occupations. For example, workers such as accountants or food service workers employed in hospitals are working in the health sector, even though they are not working in a health occupation. Individuals in health occupations may also work outside the health sector in settings such as local governments, schools, or insurance companies. The information provided in this Chartbook includes individuals in health occupations that are both within and outside the health sector. For most occupations, the Chartbook relies on the U.S. Census Bureau s ACS to estimate the total number of individuals in each occupation, their geographic distribution, the settings in which they work, and their demographic characteristics. The ACS, which uses self-reported data, is the most comprehensive source available for the broad range of occupations included in this report. 3 This report also draws from the U.S. Department of Education s Integrated Postsecondary Education System (IPEDS) to include information on the number of graduates from educational programs leading to entry into specific occupations. No graduate data are presented for occupations in which formal educational requirements are completed in institutions not reporting to IPEDS or vary substantially by state. Some important components of the health workforce are not included or fully represented in the Chartbook because of data limitations. These components include occupations for which data are not collected or reported separately by the U.S. Census Bureau. For example, data from public health nurses are not collected separately from other types of nurses. The report also does 1 HRSA analysis of the U.S. Census Bureau, American Community Survey (ACS) Public Use Microdata Sample (PUMS), HRSA analysis of the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), Employment Projections, Note: The workforce is defined as individuals employed in the occupation and individuals whose last job was in the occupation and who are still seeking employment. 3 Note: Self-reported data have limitations. Some individuals may report the occupation for which they are trained or licensed even when they are not currently working the majority of their time in that occupation. For example, a physician who is spending a majority of his/her time as an administrator may self-report as either a physician or an administrator. The ACS does not collect data on licensure or professional certification. See the Technical Documentation for additional details on ACS reporting and limitations. 1 The U.S. Health Workforce Chartbook- Part III November 2013

7 not include important health occupations, because of the small size of the occupation, such as epidemiologists and other public-health oriented disciplines like laboratorians and environmental health professionals. In addition, some occupations in the Chartbook are limited by ACS occupational groupings because of the methods by which the ACS collects and reports SOC data. For example, although the SOC has two separate groupings for medical and clinical laboratory technologists and medical and clinical laboratory technicians, the ACS only reports on medical and clinical laboratory technologists and technicians as a single occupational grouping and does not report the two occupations separately. The Chartbook is divided into four main parts for ease of reporting. Part I comprises clinicians. Part II presents additional clinician categories and occupations concerned with health care administration duties. Part III discusses health-related technologists and technicians as well as aides and assistants. Part IV describes behavioral and allied health occupations. DATA SOURCES Data for this Chartbook come primarily from two federal agencies: the U.S. Census Bureau and the U.S. Department of Education. The U.S. Census Bureau s American Community Survey (ACS): The ACS, a household survey, provides detailed self-reported data including demographic information (e.g., age, race, and sex data) on individuals working in the health occupations and is the major source of data for this report. The U.S. Department of Education s Integrated Postsecondary Education System (IPEDS): IPEDS data are used to measure the educational pipeline into the health occupations. IPEDS provides enrollment and graduation data on an annual basis for all institutions that receive or apply for federal funds. The number of graduates, by degree type, is presented for occupations for which there is a specific educational pathway into the occupation. No data are reported for those occupations without a distinct educational pathway. Descriptions of the educational and training requirements for the various occupations have been obtained from the BLS, Occupational Outlook Handbook, Edition. Also, data from HRSA s Area Resource File (ARF) are included in this Chartbook. The ARF is a comprehensive, county-level source of health workforce and other health resources data. Included in the ARF are data from the American College of Nurse-Midwives (ACNM) and the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services National Provider Identification (NPI) file. The NPI file contains data on health professionals that require unique identification for federal billing (e.g., Medicare and Medicaid), private insurance, and other purposes. In this report, NPI data in the ARF have been used for cases in which ACS data were not available (i.e., nurse practitioners and nurse anesthetists). Details on the data sources, definitions and analysis, and other information provided in the Chartbook are available in the The U.S. Health Workforce Chartbook: Technical Documentation, which can be found at Also, more detailed information on the work settings used in this report can be found on the U.S. Census Bureau website at November 2013 The U.S. Heath Workforce Chartbook- Part III 2
