Health Services Jobs Grow Three Times Faster Than Other Jobs

May 12, 2016

Health services jobs grew over three times faster than non-health, nonfarm civilian jobs in April. Health services jobs comprised 44,200 (28 percent) of 160,000 jobs added. Further, the originally reported health services job growth for February has been revised up, while the previously estimated growth in other jobs has been revised down by 22,000. Health costs will continue to increase, writes NCPA Senior Fellow John R. Graham.
