Psychology licensing boards are responsible for governing the practice of psychology in their state, province or territory. In order to practice as a psychologist in the U.S. and Canada, a psychologist must obtain an active license to practice psychology from their state or provincial psychology licensing board. Each year, ASPPB surveys the psychology licensing boards regarding the numbers of licenses they maintain and issue. The following information displays data from the number of licenses maintained and issued in 2022 by respondents.
