Technical notes and methodology

A Note About Data Availability

We make every effort to publish employment projections for as many industries and occupations as possible while following stringent guidelines to ensure the reliability of the estimates and the confidentiality of data provided voluntarily by employers. If data is not available for a particular industry or occupation of interest, it is because it did not meet those standards.

A Note About Data Time Periods

Long-term statewide employment projections by industry and occupation are completed every other year and published on the even-numbered year. Sub-state employment projections are also completed every other year, and published on the odd-numbered years. For example, the long-term 2018-2028 projections for statewide South Dakota were published in July 2020. The long-term 2018-2028 projections for the sub-state areas (the Metropolitan Statistical Areas and the balance of state area) were published in 2019. Only the most recent set of projections data is available for any area at any given time; data for prior periods is not available.
