EduSearch: Rural States May Have More Opportunity for Medical Assistants
Date:1/18/2013

Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) January 18, 2013

EduSearch released a study Thursday showing rural states with smaller populations may contain more job opportunity for medical assistants than more populated states in the coming decade. The study cited statistics from the US Labor Bureau and other sources. According to EduSearch, opportunity comes from a state’s ratio of baby boomers to medical assistants, as projected growth in medical assistant employment is largely based on the increasing medical needs of baby boomers.

Statistics showed North Dakota, Arkansas, Montana, Mississippi and Wyoming to have the highest numbers of baby boomer residents per medical assistant employed in the state, implying those states may soon see greater need for medical assistants to meet increasing boomer healthcare needs.

According to the study, North Dakota has around 522 baby boomers for each employed medical assistant. The national average is around 182 baby boomers per medical assistant. Since the medical assistant job description involves many of the support tasks and minor clinical procedures needed to run medical facilities, an increase in demand from baby boomers would likely be more felt more in states with higher boomer-to-medical assistant ratios.

Medical assistant job growth is expected to increase by 31% between the years 2010 and 2020, according to Labor Bureau statistics – one of the highest growth rates in the healthcare industry.

This study was conducted by EduSearch and MedicalAssistants.net using 2010 and 2011 data gathered from EconomicModeling.com, TheGreenPapers.com and the US Bureau of Labor Statistics.
