Typical entry-level educational requirement data sets

Note: The May 2017 and May 2018 OES estimates by typical entry-level educational requirement should not be compared directly to the May 2015 and May 2016 estimates because the typical entry-level educational requirements assigned to some occupations have changed. The May 2017 and May 2018 estimates are based on the system of education and training categories used for the 2016-26 employment projections. The May 2015 and May 2016 estimates are based on an earlier version of the system used for the 2014-24 employment projections. For more information on using OES data to look at changes through time, see "Can OES data be used to compare changes in employment and wages over time?"
