Long-Term Occupational Projections in New York City


The following information is from the New York State Department of Labor.

Long-term occupational employment projections represent an extensive and valuable data source for those interested in future employment patterns. It is important to note they measure only occupational demand. When exploring career options, employment projections are most useful when used with other types of data, such as supply of workers in a particular occupation, educational requirements, wages, etc. It is also important to note that these projections are intended to capture long-term occupational trends, and are not designed to reflect short-term business cycle fluctuations in the New York State economy.

Current regional projections cover the 2008-2018 period. The data is updated every two years.
