Employment of social workers in all areas will grow faster than the average in the coming years, with an overall rise of 12 percent. Competition for jobs in cities will be high due to the number of qualified candidates, but openings in rural areas may be easier to obtain. The steadily increasing elderly population will keep demand high for health and social service workers who specialize in helping senior citizens.
