List of STEM Occupations

Table 1: List of occupations used in Occupational Employment and Wage Statistics (OEWS) STEM definition, May 2021
NOTE: Because of changes to the occupational classification system that began with the May 2019 OEWS estimates, the May 2021 STEM aggregation is not directly comparable to the STEM aggregation used in OEWS data prior to 2019.
