Abstract
Selected demographic characteristics of employed persons in Health Care are provided by subsector, constituent industries (where available) and for all industries, for comparison purposes (Tables 2.9 and 2.10). These characteristics include gender, race and ethnicity, and age. About 78% (11.2 million) of the workers in Health Care are women, more than any other industry. Table 2.11 presents sex, race, and ethnicity demographics of the top 20 Health Care occupations with the largest number of workers.
