Employment in health care will continue to grow for several reasons. The number of people in older age groups, with much greater than average health care needs, will grow faster than the total population between 2006 and 2016; as a result, the demand for health care degree holders will increase. Wage and salary employment in the health care industry is projected to increase 22 percent through 2016.
