*SOC Code - Standard Occupational Classification, 2000. For definitions of each SOC occupation, please visit the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics website at http://www.bls.gov/soc/socguide.htm.

Notes:
Data is preliminary and subject to revision. Occupations with fewer than 20 workers in 2010 were excluded. Number of jobs data for 2010 and 2020 rounded to nearest five. Data presented for occupations will not sum to totals due to non-publishable data for additional occupations included in totals.

Demand data is the summation of job openings estimated due to projected employment growth and job openings projected to be created due to replacement need of current workers. Replacement need is estimated by multiplying occupational employment estimates by national replacement rates supplied by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS). These rates estimate the number of job openings, by occupation, which will be attributed to a worker permanently leaving an occupation (e.g. retirement, death, exits the workforce, etc. ). Average annual demand data are calculated by dividing by ten, the number of years in the projection period.
