The Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) created an interactive periodic table of Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) occupations instead of chemical elements.

You can hover over an "element" or group to highlight each occupational discipline in the table.

Periodic Table of STEM Occupations

BLS debuted the i
nteractive Periodic Table of STEM Occupations to celebrate the periodic table of chemical elements, created by Dmitry Mendeleev in 1869, which is one of the most important achievements in modern science.

Workers in STEM occupations use science and mathematics to understand how the world works and to solve problems. 

In addition to the labor market data shown for each STEM occupation in the table’s occupational “blocks,” clicking on an occupational block takes the user directly to the respective occupational profile in BLS’ Occupational Outlook Handbook (OOH).


Those OOH profiles include links to Employment and Training Administration (ETA) occupational data products:

  • An occupation video from CareerOneStop (available for the vast majority of occupations in the OOH), and

  • A weblink to the O*NET OnLine summary, detailed, and custom Skills/Tasks/Work Activity reports.
