Epidemiologists

Outlook

Employment of epidemiologists is projected to grow 6 percent from 2014 to 2024, about as fast as the average for all occupations, according to the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL). Job prospects for epidemiologists are promising because there will always be a need to understand, control, and prevent the spread of disease. There is particular promise in the growing field of environmental epidemiology. The DOL reports that "continued improvements in medical recordkeeping will further improve epidemiologists’ ability to track health outcomes, demographic data, and other useful data. Improvements in statistical and mapping software will improve analysis and make epidemiological data more, thereby requiring the expertise of epidemiologists."
