Employment Projections

Employment Projections estimate the changes in industry and occupational employment over time resulting from industry growth, technological change, and other factors. California produces long-term (10 year) projections of employment every 2 years for the State and local areas. Statewide short-term (2 year) projections are revised annually.

The files below contain all of the data for a single area. To extract data for selected occupations or areas, use the Occupational Projections Data Search Tool.
Note: California Community Colleges should go to Job Outlook for Occupational Education Programs for occupational projections by Taxonomy of Programs or Classification of Instructional Programs code.
