Long-Term Occupational Projections (2020-2030)

Use this page to sort, search, filter, and export long term projections. To sort the data select the header of the column to sort. Data can be filtered by entering a specific state name, or occupational title. Use "Double Quotes" to search for an exact term. If the table below is empty when a particular state is entered, that state has not yet submitted projections. If a particular occupation does not show up this means there is no publicly available projection for that occupation in the area specified.

The data is also available via REST and Direct Download.

Additional information and resources are available on each State's website, and the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics website. More information about occupational details can be found on the O*NET Online website.
