New 1996-2006 Employment Projections

Excerpted from: Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) News Release, December 3, 1997

The Bureau of Labor Statistics, U. S. Department of Labor, recently released new projections for the American work force from 1996 to 2006. These projections provide information on where future job growth is expected by industry and occupation, as well as what the demographic makeup of the work force pursuing those jobs is likely to be. These 10-year projections are widely used for studying long-range economic and employment trends, planning education and training programs and developing career information.

Data are provided regarding national economic growth, the labor force (supply of workers), and employment by industry (see Table 1) and occupation (see Table 2). Again, the tables shown here represent only a small portion of the information that is available; more detailed information is included in the November 1997 issue of the Monthly Labor Review. Please contact the BLS for more information (see telephone number and World Wide Web site address below).

For more information about national projections, contact the Bureau of Labor Statistics at (202) 606-5700 or visit them on the Internet:

If you would like information about employment projections specifically for Wyoming, please refer to "County-Based Industry Projections for Wyoming".
