Job outlook data

Dietitians and nutritionists held around 67,000 jobs in 2014, the last year for which data are available. Employment of dietitians and nutritionists is projected to grow 16 percent from 2014 to 2024.

In recent years, interest in the role of food and nutrition in promoting health and wellness has increased, particularly as part of preventative healthcare in medical settings. Rising obesity, diabetes and other disease rates can be countered by healthy food choices with the help of a nutritionist. As the baby boom generation grows older and looks for ways to stay healthy, there will also be more demand for dietetic services.
