The main products of the Employment Projections (EP) program are released on the BLS website biennially and in the Monthly Labor Review (MLR), Occupational Outlook Handbook (OOH), and Career Outlook. In addition, the BLS website provides projected data of the economy, final demand, output, employment, and occupation. The MLR typically includes an examination of the assumptions and results for technical data users. The OOH contains extensive information about hundreds of occupations. In addition to presenting outlook data for each occupation, this publication includes information on the nature of the work, education and training requirements, working conditions, and wages. The OOH is used as a primary source of information for people choosing a career and is available online in many career centers of high schools and colleges, as well as in libraries. Career Outlook publishes articles related to career preparation topics such as occupational profiles, jobseeking information, and understanding wage and benefits data.
