This section contains three reports. Each report can be viewed as a table, chart or map.
The current employment report includes total employment by occupation, state and region. Data is available for all states and Metropolitan Statistical Areas, but not all sub-state regions. You can view this information in three formats: Tables, Charts, and Maps.
The projected employment report includes total projected employment and job openings by occupation for all states and the U.S. Employment is the number of jobs projected in this occupation. The employment projection period is from 2016 to 2026. Percent change is the expected job growth for the selected occupation. The estimate for job openings includes both turnover that results from workers who leave the occupation (e.g. quit, retire, death) and new jobs that are created. You can view this information in three formats: Tables, Charts, and Maps.
The employment concentration value reflects the level of employment in a selected state or region relative to the U.S. as a whole. Employment concentration values are derived by calculating a location quotient for a geographic region and occupation. Location quotient values greater than 1.0 indicate a region has a larger share of employment compared to the U.S. as a whole. A value of three for example, indicates a region has a concentration of employment much higher than the level of employment concentration for the U.S. for the selected occupation. Values less that 1.0 indicate the region has a share of employment less than the U.S. as a whole. In some cases data may not be available for a state or region. You can view employment concentration information in three formats: Tables, Charts and Maps.
