Health Workforce Data and Reports

In 1993, the Minnesota Legislature mandated collection of a variety of information from many licensed or registered health care providers. Working with Minnesota's licensing boards, the Office of Rural Health and Primary Care collects practice data for health professionals in conjunction with regular licensing renewals.

Survey response rates vary between 60 percent and 90 percent, depending on the profession surveyed. Data include major professional activities; hours per week in each major professional activity; practice location and setting; specialties; race and ethnicity (added in 2005).
