Health Workforce Projections, Supply and Demand (HRSA)

Find workforce projections for many health professions, that look at supply and demand. By HRSA (Health Resources and Services Administration), an agency of the Department of Health and Human Services. Studies in the past 3 years show workforce needs to 2030. Studies published in 2020, 2021 and 2022 include Women’s Health Service Providers (such as OB-GYNs and midwives), Oral Health Workforce (which estimates a shortage of nearly 5,000 general dentists by 2030), and Behavioral Health Workforce (which projects shortages in psychiatrists and addiction counselors.) Potentially, the supply of psychologists and therapists will be adequate to meet demand, while there may be an excess of social workers and school counselors by 2030.) Older reports examined demand for direct care workers (like nursing assistants, home health aides and personal care aides), and nursing workforce demand. Updated as reports are published.
