Our projections show expected change in employment by industry and occupation, the current and projected employment counts, estimated growth rates and average annual openings.
We develop short-, medium- and long-term projections.
- Short-term projections are two-year projections.
- Medium-term projections are five-year projections.
- Long-term projections are 10-year projections.
We revise the projections annually.
How are employment projections developed?
Twice each year, we survey employers to learn how many people are employed in each industry. We use the staffing patterns gleaned from the surveys to convert industry employment to occupational estimates.
