In June 2012, we were thrilled to present the premiere edition of NCARB by the Numbers. As a first dive into our steadily expanding data warehouse, we offered demographic insights about those entering the profession, provided information about the length of time required to complete the IDP and to get licensed, and delivered basic measures about our programs and services.
2013 NCARB by the Numbers
In this year’s release, we’ve updated these key measures and have expanded the publication to include new metrics on the Architect Registration Examination® (ARE®). One positive trend that deserves to be highlighted is the health of the profession as a whole.
Thanks to improved information systems, NCARB now has the ability to mine nearly 100 years worth of Record holder data to produce trend snapshots—placing the Council is in a unique position to provide a clear and definitive source of information about the past, present, and future of the architectural profession.
We hope you find the second edition of NCARB by the Numbers a valuable resource for better understanding our incredible profession. [Download]
