FACTS 1: Occupational projections for direct-care workers 2012–2022

Abstract: 

Summarizes data from the national occupational projections issued by the Bureau of Labor Statistics at the U.S. Department of Labor. PHI's analysis of the data suggests that demand for direct-care workers over the next decade -- projected to reach 1.3 million new positions by 2022 -- will continue to outpace supply, as direct-care jobs' low wages present a significant barrier to recruitment and retention.
