5 Job Outlook & Earnings Job Outlook: Job Outlook In Georgia: The outlook on this job varies slightly with the national birth rates. There are some decades when more children are born. For the 10 or 15 years children have to see pediatricians for their medical needs. Thus, even if the birth rate decreases, pediatricians are still in demand as older children need to see them. It is very unlikely that the demand for pediatricians will decrease because the population is continuing to grow and more people have babies.Job Outlook In Georgia:20.3%, and annual openings 70Job Outlook in the U.S:14.2%, annual openings 20,440.Earnings:140,690 per year (national median)
