If you consider training in a special skill to be pursued in a trade, you might want to know what occupation will be in high demand in next few years. Below you find a map that linked to 2010-2020 Projections of Change in State Occupations.
State projections are developed in the labor market information sections of each State Employment Security Agency. Each State Employment Security Agency, in cooperation with the Bureau of Labor Statistics, uses the Occupational Employment Statistics (OES) report to gather occupational employment data. These OES data are the basis for the staffing patterns used in the projections. The data collected reflect the Standard Occupational Classification (SOC).
Please note, that projections and data presented on this site are the responsibility of State agencies that developed projections. The accuracy of projections for individual occupations is subject to error, because of the many unknown factors affect the economy over the projection period. While occupational employment projections and related job outlook information can provide valuable inputs to the career decision-making process, they should not be the sole basis for a choice of career.
