Intended to provide current statistics on health manpower and inpatient health facilities for the evaluation, planning, and administration of health programs, data were gathered from college and university records, state licensing records, association membership records, and agencies and establishments that provide health services. About 3.7 million persons were employed in 1968 in 34 health professions and occupational areas identified in this publication. Nursing and related services were the largest category of employed persons, followed by medicine and osteopathy, secretarial and office services, and dentistry and allied services. There were an estimated 31,000 inpatient health facilities in the United States, with 63 percent nursing care and related homes, 26 percent hospitals, and 11 percent sheltered care facilities. This represents an estimated increase of 3,800 inpatient health facilities or 14 percent since 1963. These and other data are provided in textual and tabular form. A list of health occupations is appended, and a subject index is included. (SB)
