Pediatric Physicians Workforce Data Book 2016-2017

For more than two decades, the ABP has shared workforce data about pediatric physicians with the larger medical community through the publication of an annual workforce data book.




Why It’s Important

Tracking the pediatric physician workforce is essential for understanding its makeup, numbers, distribution, and practice patterns, but it is not just about publishing numbers.

We believe this report provides valuable information to pediatricians, pediatric residency and subspecialty training program directors, hospital administrators, policymakers, researchers, and others interested in ensuring that we have the skilled workforce necessary to meet the health care needs of infants, children, adolescents, young adults, and their families.


How It’s Used

While these data are collected primarily to inform operational activities at the ABP and the pediatric community, a number of secondary analyses have been conducted using these data and have been published in the peer-reviewed literature. To find publications related to the ABP’s workforce-related research, search under Publications.
