NCARB’s leading indicators show signs of a thriving architectural profession

ncarb-logoAmong the major findings of NCARB by the Numbers, the National Council of Architectural Registration Boards’ annual report on architectural licensing are that architects are getting licensed at the youngest median age in a decade and that the number of women applying for architect credentials is growing.

A major finding in this year’s report is that the median age of people at initial licensure is at a 10 year low. This means architects are getting licensed at a younger age.

The report also indicates an increase since 2011 in the number of women applying for NCARB Records. The percentage of women applying for NCARB Records continues to hold around 40 percent—a marked increase from 10 percent in the early 1990s.
