Review Health Workforce Research

The National Center for Health Workforce Analysis (NCHWA) develops research reports. We focus on issues that affect the U.S. health workforce.

Health policymakers consider the supply, demand, distribution, and education of health workers when developing policy and programs. 

Projecting Supply and Demand

Our health workforce projections present the national supply of, and demand for, health professions by discipline.

See the most recent workforce projections briefs for nursing, behavioral health, primary care, physicians, and long-term services and support.

Maternal Health Workforce Data

NCHWA's maternal health workforce brief (PDF - 344 KB) provides data on the state of the maternal health workforce.

Nursing Workforce Research

The National Sample Survey of Registered Nurses (NSSRN) provides information on job satisfaction, stress, and burnout. To view the NSSRN data, visit the data dashboard. For NSSRN data on job satisfaction, visit Job Satisfaction Among Registered Nurses - Pre-COVID.
