The National Center for Health Workforce Analysis is charged with estimating the supply and demand for health workers in order to inform decision-making around health workforce investments. NCHWA conducts other types of research and analysis on the health workforce and produces reports on health workforce supply, education, demand, and distribution. NCHWA also maintains the Area Health Resources File, an important data source for health services research.
NCHWA has several projects underway (at various stages of completion) to produce detailed workforce projections for key health professions, and to produce projections for most heath occupations (cross-occupations projections) over the next several years. Provided below are estimated dates for release of projections.
