Employment: Architects, Except Landscape and Naval




Architects held about 113,000 jobs in 2002. Almost 2 out of 3 jobs were in architectural, engineering, and related services—mostly in architectural firms with fewer than five workers. A small number worked for residential and nonresidential building construction firms and for government agencies responsible for housing, planning, or community development, such as the U.S. Departments of Defense and Interior, and the General Services Administration. About 1 in 5 architects was self-employed.
