Infographic: Number of U.S. Architects in 2014

The architecture profession continues to grow alongside a gradually recovering economy, according to the 2014 Survey of Architectural Registration Boards. Every year, NCARB requests the number of architects and reciprocal licenses from each of its jurisdictions—which includes all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Guam, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

The latest survey indicates that there are 107,581 architects in the United States, a 3.1 percent since 2011. “Our survey documents an architecture profession that is thriving,” said NCARB CEO Michael Armstrong. “NCARB will continue to spearhead changes in architectural licensing standards to support a growing architecture industry.”
