*SOC - Standard Occupational Classification, 2010 Find descriptions of SOC occupations by code (2010 version).
Notes:
Data is preliminary and subject to revision.
Data for occupations with less than 20 workers in 2012 not included.
Number of workers data for 2012 and 2022 rounded to nearest five.

Data presented for occupations will not sum to totals due to rounding and 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. The average annual demand across all occupations is 20; thus those occupations with annual average demand greater than 20 are considered as having higher than average annual demand through 2022. For more information, see projections methodology.
