National Projections are a BLS program and State and Local Projections are an ETA program conducted in partnership with states.  National projections are produced every two years while the areas and frequency of state-level estimates is more variable.

Data Sources

SourceBLSAlthough data is produced for industries and occupations and combined into a single table for the purposes of the WID, the BLS presents them as separate programs.  Analysis and documentation may not apply to both industry and occupational projections.

Table Format

In version 2.8 field titles were lengthened and an ownership field was added to inddir to help crosswalk the industries that are unique to projections. With version 2.7, data fields were added to reflect changes in methodology.  Fields that no longer have historically consistent meaning or are no longer available were left in the table structure to preserve historic data but are meant to be left NULL with new imports.
