Long-Term Industry Employment Projections
This publication presents industry employment projections. These long-term projections are revised every two years to incorporate economic changes that occur across the nation. Data contained in these tables are the best available source of information for estimating job opportunities, developing training programs and gaining an insight into future employment trends. All data in this publication were prepared by the Pennsylvania Department of Labor & Industry, Center for Workforce Information & Analysis (CWIA).
The projections are estimates of employment levels and trends, not exact counts. Events may occur during the ten-year projection period that are impossible to predict. These data are most useful when used in conjunction with other economic data.
Long-term industry projections are published for the state, 22 Workforce Investment Areas and 14 Metropolitan Statistical Areas. Please click on the links listed below to select your geographical area of interest.
Statewide Data are for the 2012-2022 projection cycle. Metropolitan Statistical Area Data and Workforce Investment Area Data currently reflect the 2010-2020 projection cycle and will be updated for the 2012-2022 projection cycle this coming fall.
