The Occupational Outlook Handbook (OOH), published every 2 years by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), features projections of job outlook and employment prospects. The 2012–13 edition of the OOH contains the 2010–20 employment projections and detailed information for almost 350 occupations, including each occupation’s job tasks and wages, along with the education and training typically required to enter it.
This special issue of the Occupational Outlook Quarterly (OOQ) includes a table highlighting 2010 employment, 2010–20 projections, 2010 wage data, and education and training information so you can compare occupations at a glance. Unlike previous presentations of the “job outlook in brief,” the table in this issue provides less narrative but more data for each occupation. PDF by occupation
