Education and Health Services

The Education Services industry provides instruction and training in a wide variety of subjects. This instruction and training is provided by specialized establishments, such as schools, colleges, universities, and training centers. These establishments may be privately owned and operated for profit or not for profit, or they may be publicly owned and operated. Educational services are usually delivered by teachers or instructors that explain, tell, demonstrate, supervise, and direct learning.

The Health Services industry provides health care and social assistance for individuals. It includes both health care and social assistance because it is sometimes difficult to distinguish between the boundaries of these two activities.
