Prior research by the University of Washington Center for Health Workforce Studies’ (UW CHWS) found that supply estimates of health professionals at national and state levels vary across secondary data sets such as the American Community Survey, Current Population Survey, and the Occupational Employment Statistics. Additional UW CHWS analyses found age cohort trends and commuting patterns for select occupations.
This findings brief discusses the development of a Leveraging Public Data for Workforce Analyses Dashboard, which provides interactive visualizations of the supply of workers, aging trends, and commuting patterns for 16 allied health occupations and occupation groups.
