Jobs in environment and conservation nearly triple from January 2001 to June 2019

February 06, 2020

Employment in membership associations and organizations, such as environment and conservation organizations, tends to be seasonal. Like environment and conservation organizations, employment in civic and social organizations peaks in the summer months. Employment in religious organizations tends to peak during the holiday season, while employment in political organizations peaks during election cycles. In June 2019, there were 1,444,865 jobs in private membership associations and organizations, compared with 1,219,056 in January 2001.

Employment in environment and conservation organizations reached a high of 76,569 in June 2019, and nearly tripled from its January 2001 level of 26,070. Over that period, employment in professional organizations also reached a high of 89,095 in June 2019.
