The number of individuals working toward licensure also reached an all-time high last year, according to data from the council’s forthcoming 2016 “By the Numbers” report.
The architectural design profession continues to grow, with more women pursuing licensure than ever before, according to data released today by the National Council of Architectural Registration Boards (NCARB). The licensing body is previewing the forthcoming release of its annual “By the Numbers” report with data detailing the latest demographics on the industry. The number of practitioners working toward licensure reached an all-time high in 2015 with more than 41,500 individuals either taking the Architect Registration Exam, reporting Architecture Experience Program (AXP, formerly IDP) hours, or both. That’s up from 37,178 in 2014—a record high at that time. And nearly 41,000 U.S. architects held an NCARB certificate for reciprocal licensure across the U.S., Canada, and Mexico in 2015, up 4 percent from 2014.
