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.
Program Accomplishments & Outcomes
We evaluate our programs during and after completion. This allows us to understand the impact of our funding and continue improving our programs.
