2015 NCARB by the Numbers
This year’s NCARB by the Numbers explores the behavior of aspiring architects on the path to licensure in an entirely new format, allowing for a more comprehensive picture of the profession. The latest data indicates progress in several key areas, which all lead to a single, positive conclusion—the architecture profession is not simply healthy, but thriving.
Major findings in the 2015 report include a record-high figure for aspiring architects, and growing diversity within the profession in terms of both women, and racial and ethnic minorities. It also shows that the number of licensed architects is steadily increasing, while the average age of architects upon initial licensure is falling—making for an expanding, and more youthful, professional community.
In order to improve its transparency and readability, this edition introduces a new method for presenting our architect licensure data. Data sections are now broken out by specific topics, and comparative statistics for each of the 54 U.S. jurisdictions are presented in a dashboard format.
We hope the 2015 NCARB by the Numbers provides the clear analysis and helpful insights into licensure that you need to guide both professional and aspiring architects along their career path. Download your copy today!
