Recently Released Projections
The National Center for Health Workforce Analysis (NCHWA) helps public and private organizations understand how changes in population will affect future workforce demands.
How does this data help?
By estimating supply, demand, and distribution of health care workers, we inform public policy to help prevent shortages and surpluses.
How do we make our projections?
We project the national supply of and demand for health professions by discipline. We use HRSA’s Health Workforce Simulation Model (PDF - 2 MB)* to do this.
