While the output share is relatively small, health care comprises about 22 percent of household spending, up from 10 percent in the 1970s.
The health care sector has generated about 30 percent of new jobs nationally since 2007 and 50 percent of new jobs in the Eighth District.
Not all jobs in health care have high wages. One-third of workers are in health care support occupations that pay below the average wage.
