The Supply of Health Manpower. 1970 Profiles and Projections to 1990.
Department of Health, Education, and Welfare, Washington, DC.
This document provides descriptive profiles of the current and past supply of health manpower and projections of manpower supply to 1990. It presents detailed descriptions of the methodology and techniques used to derive the profiles and projections, and provides interpretations and evaluations of the adequacy and comparability of existing statistics, with descriptions of the more conspicuous gaps in the current health manpower information system. The health manpower occupations covered are the major health professional categories, including a number of specialities within these categories, and selected groups of allied health professions and occupations. The report was developed to provide a wide range of users of health manpower statistics with a comprehensive reference compendium of basic information on major health occupations. It was prepared in 1972 and 1973 as part of a major manpower study within the Bureau of Health Resources Development. The chapters are divided into two main parts. The first part provides an overview of the concepts, methodology, and assumptions underlying the estimates and projections. It also presents summary highlights of the study in both tabular and narrative form. The second part presents detailed statistical material on the current manpower profile and projected supply in specific health fields. These two parts are followed by appendixes that include detailed projection tables presenting information not shown separately in individual chapters. (Author/KE)
