North Carolina Health Professions Data System

One of the most comprehensive and continuously maintained state-level data systems available to track the supply and distribution of health professionals in the nation, this up-to-date inventory of all licensed health professionals in the State has been used continuously for over 30 years for planning and evaluation of health professions distribution. Each year, the Sheps Center has produced an annual publication entitled A Special Report on Health Care Resources in North Carolina: North Carolina Health Professions Data Book. In recent years a companion publication, Health Professions Supply by County Pocket Guide, has been released in tandem with the annual databook. These publications are widely used by state policymakers, researchers, media, and professionals in the health care industry as the official source of health professions statistics in North Carolina.
