Projections Central is the U.S. Employment and Training Administration’s (ETA) site for collecting and displaying state-level occupational employment projections. 

The site provides data on long-term (10-year) projections, and short-term (2-year) projections.  

About Projections Central

The Projections Central site houses data populated by state or territorial government analysts who are responsible for developing employment projections under contract with the U.S. Department of Labor, Employment and Training Administration.

For each of hundreds of detailed occupations, Projections Central provides employment totals in the initial year, projected employment a decade later, the numerical difference between the initial and subsequent projection, the percentage change, and the average annual number of job openings.
