The ninth edition of the National Council of Architectural Registration Boards’ (NCARB) annual report has been released, in the midst of new challenges due to the COVID-19 pandemic, highlighting major information about the architecture profession in 2019. Focusing on different parameters, such as licensing, education, experience, and demographics, the study explores the evolution and transformation of the field, encompassing also findings on equity, diversity, and inclusion. The publication, based on information gathered at the end of 2019, “demonstrates growth and positive evolution”. In fact, a noticeable increase is spotted in the number of U.S.-licensed architects as well as in diversity and gender parity at many career stages. On another hand, a slight decrease has been observed in the time it takes to earn an architecture license. In the latest report, NCARB has also explored new metrics such as race and gender representation at various career stages. Offering insight into the evolution of architectural licensure, this year’s 2020 NCARB by the Numbers also features first results from a survey on equity, diversity, and inclusion in licensure conducted in partnership with the National Organization of Minority Architects (NOMA).
