Securing up-to-date and accurate data on the number of the health care workers is crucial for health workforce planning. This study developed and compared national and state estimates of the supply of allied health occupations drawn from two publicly available national data sources (the American Community Survey [ACS] and the Occupational Employment and Wage Statistics [OEWS] from 2014 and 2017]), and from state license records (2016-17), expanding on the 2015-2016 UW CHWS study “Data for Allied Health Workforce Research.” The final report for this Phase II study describes uses and limitations of workforce supply estimates from the data sources examined.
