Other BLS publications describing the 2008-18 projections


This issue of the Quarterly is one of several BLS publications that include projections data. The others give more detail or present the projections from another point of view.

Occupational Outlook Handbook
  • The November 2009 issue of the Monthly Labor Review contains five articles related to the projections. The first summarizes the projections and is followed by four more detailed articles, each focusing on one major component: labor force, economic growth, industry output and employment, and occupational employment.
  • The 2010-11 edition of the Occupational Outlook Handbook assesses job outlook for hundreds of occupations. It also discusses each occupation's work activities, working conditions, earnings, and educational requirements that people need to enter and succeed in the occupation.


Career Guide to Industries
  • The 2010-11 edition of the Career Guide to Industries presents employment projections from an industry perspective. It provides details on employment, working conditions, occupations in the industry, training and advancement, earnings, and job outlook for 45 major industries.
  • "The job outlook in brief" summarizes occupations covered in the Occupational Outlook Handbook. It includes employment data, projections, and a short description of prospective employment trends. The "Brief" will be presented in the spring 2010 Quarterly.

    Each of these publications will be available online at no cost. Price and ordering information for the print versions will be published on the Employment Projections program's Web site,
