Short-Term Industry Forecasts
Short-term industry forecasts anticipate changes in employment within an industry over a two-year period. They are revised every year to incorporate economic changes that occur across the nation and commonwealth of Pennsylvania. While long-term industry projections can meet the needs of extended economic planning and curriculum development, more timely information is necessary for job seekers, technical training providers, employers and many others to anticipate economic shifts in the coming months.
These forecasts are estimates of employment levels and trends, not exact counts. Events may occur during the two-year forecast period that are impossible to predict. These data are most useful when used in conjunction with other economic data.
