Workforce Supply

Workforce supply represents the number of people working or available to work in health care settings. Depending on the situation, some supply estimates also incorporate specific adjustments that reflect capacity for work and productivity. For example, FTE (ie, full-time equivalent) estimates are based on the number of hours a person works a week to determine who is considered full-time.
