Occupation Employment Projections Download Center
To allocate projected industry employment to occupations, a set of industry-occupation matrices are developed. For each occupation, the Matrix provides a detailed breakdown of employment by industry and class of worker. Similarly, for each industry and class of worker, the Matrix provides a detailed breakdown of occupational employment. Base-year employment data for wage and salary workers, self-employed workers, and unpaid family workers come from a variety of sources, and measure total employment as a count of jobs, not a count of individual workers. The Matrix’s total employment concept includes all jobs, not just nonfarm payroll jobs. The Matrix does not include employment estimates for every industry which employs an occupation, or every occupation employed within an industry. Some data are not released due to confidentiality. Detailed data may not sum to totals because of rounding or because some data are not released.
