Employment Trends

Labor Market Information State by State

Labor market information includes statistics on employment, wages, industries and other factors affecting the world of work. The links from The Riley Guide take users to labor market information for the individual states so that data can be compared across states.

State Occupational Projections

This site contains projections of occupational employment growth developed for all states and the nation as a whole. One of the most important uses of these is to help individuals make informed career decisions. Users can review information on projected employment growth for an occupation in several states or select several occupations and compare their growth projection in one state only. The short-term projections do not appear to be updated, but the more important long-term projections are being updated on a 2-year cycle, with data through 2014 now being displayed.

Career Voyages

Career Voyages is designed to provide information on high-growth, high-demand occupations along with the skills and education needed to attain those jobs. This site is the result of collaboration between the U.S. Department of Labor and the U.S. Department of Education.
