Health care is healthy. The U.S. health care workforce continued to grow faster than any other economic sector last month, even as the unemployment rate held steady at 9.1%, reveals new data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
A total of 44,000 jobs-- more than one third of the 103,000 non-farm positions added—are in the health care field.
The ambulatory health care services sub-sector, which includes such entities as physicians' and dentists’ offices and diagnostic laboratories — gained 26,000 jobs. A total of 13,000 jobs were added in the hospital sub-sector.
Moreover, the U.S. Department of Labor Department predicts that health care will grow faster than any other industry through 2018, largely because of the aging population.
