In 2000-01, about 361,200 people were employed in health occupations, and comprised 4% of the total number of employed persons in Australia (table 9.34). The health work force grew by an average of 2.2% per year from 1996-97 (the earliest available comparable year), around the same rate of growth for total employment (2.1%). Registered nurses and registered midwives increased in number between 1996-97 and 2000-01, while the number of enrolled nurses declined, reflecting the structural changes in nursing occupations.
