Health Care Workforce Data & Analysis
The Health Workforce Planning and Analysis Unit is housed within the Minnesota Office of Rural Health and Primary Care (ORHPC) at the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH).
Our team of researchers collects and analyzes Minnesota-specific data on nearly 20 different licensed health care professions.
MDH is the only organization collecting this level of detailed data on the state’s health care workforce. We provide data and analyses to legislators, reporters, workforce planners, researchers, and others, for a variety of purposes.
The Health Workforce Planning and Analysis Unit develops reports and fact sheets for individual professions and a wider range of health care specialties, such as mental health, oral health, and primary care. We also provide a data tool that allows you to view and download raw data by licensed profession.
