Pharmacists

Outlook

The U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) predicts that employment for pharmacists will increase through 2024, but at a rate that is slower than the average for all occupations. Growth will be attributable to the growing middle-aged and senior population (generally the largest consumers of medications), technical and scientific advances that will make more drugs available and affordable, the passage of the Affordable Care Act (which has allowed more people to receive health insurance—including coverage for prescriptions), and even the advertising of medications that informs consumers of the variety of medicines available, resulting in their requesting these drugs.
