The Largest Growing Industry

Healthcare occupations are on a rise. The industry is expected to grow 14 percent from 2018 to 2028, adding about 1.9 million new jobs. Healthcare occupations are projected to add more jobs than any of the other occupational groups. This projected growth is mainly due to an aging population, leading to greater demand for healthcare services.
