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.

(2)  The NAICS - North American Industry Classification System is the nationally recognized system to categorize industries. See the NAICS Division Structure at the U.S. Department of Labor Web site for a complete list of industries and their definitions.

(3)  "SOC Code" - Search for a particular Standard Occupational Classification (SOC) code or occupation title at the Bureau of Labor Statistics Web site.

(4) The Training Levels were developed by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. They are meant to show the education and training needed for someone to perform that occupation.
