Long-Term Occupational Employment Projections

Long-term Occupational Projections for a 10-year time horizon are provided for the State and its labor market regions to provide individuals and organizations with an occupational outlook to make informed decisions on individual career and organizational program development. Long-term projections are revised biannually. Data are not available for geographies below the labor market regions. Detail may not add to summary lines due to suppression of data because of confidentiality and/or quality.
