(1)  Source:  These data come from the Industry and Occupation Employment Projections program of the Employment Development Department.  All employment figures have been rounded to the nearest 100.  See the Occupational Projections - Introduction and Methods and the Industry Projections - Introduction and Methods for more information.  Some occupation/industry combinations may not be included to protect employer confidentiality or because the base survey resulted in a large standard error.

Although these Staffing Patterns are not provided below the state level, the Employment Projections by Industry and Occupation are available by county or groups of counties.
