Home Health Aide is Fastest Growing Job Since Great Recession

Home health aide is among the fastest growing jobs since the economy has recovered from the Great Recession.

From 2007 to 2017, 296,952 home health aide jobs were added—a 46% increase, according to recently released data from CareerBuilder.

The pattern of growth has been well documented over the years, driven in large part by the aging population. In-home care providers continue to name recruiting aides as a top industry challenge. At the same time, home health care providers are facing high turnover rates.


Registered nurses overall had major growth since the recession as well, rising 16% from 2007 to 2017 with 397,315 more jobs.
