About the Data
Data are taken from the 2010 Occupational Employment Statistics (OES) survey, distributed by the Bureau of Labor Statistics on an annual basis. The OES survey measures occupational employment and wage rates for wage and salary workers in nonfarm establishments in the 50 States and the District of Columbia. Through a multi-panel, probability sample design, approximately 78 million of 125 million total employment are surveyed. More information about the survey, including methods and data limitations, can be found here. Occupational classifications can be found here.

Website Notes
For purposes of this website, “Total Health Workforce” is defined as the sum of the health occupations displayed within, which reflect the fifty largest or projected largest health occupations as found within the 2008-2018 Employment Projections provided by the Bureau of Labor Statistics. The data presented on this site reflects the number of positions and does not include self-employed workers. Occupational titles followed by an asterisk (*) have similar titles, but not necessarily the same content as the 2010 Standard Occupational Classification (SOC) occupations. Physicians and Surgeons include multiple specialties as found in the OES survey; as a result, average wage information is not available.
