Employment Projections

Labor Market Information Resources and Data: Home | By Customer | By Subject | By Geography | Data Library | Online Services

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.

Effects of COVID-19 on the Employment Projections Program
The 2018-2028 employment projections do not include impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic and response efforts. Employment projections are developed using models based on historical data, which in this set of projections cover the period through 2018; all input data therefore precede the pandemic. Employment projections are long-term projections intended to capture structural change in the economy, not cyclical fluctuations. As such, they are not intended to capture the impacts of the recession that began in February 2020. However, besides the immediate recessionary impacts, the pandemic may cause new structural changes to the economy. Subsequent employment projections will incorporate new information on economic structural changes as it becomes available.

The Job Outlook for California Community College Educational Programs provides community colleges with the information they need to document the job outlook for enrollees in various community college occupational education programs. This application provides a link between the Taxonomy of Programs (TOP) or the Classification of Instructional Programs (CIP) to the statewide and local area occupational projections developed by the Employment Development Department (EDD). It was built in cooperation with the California Community Colleges Chancellor's Office (CCCCO).
