Employment Projections

The Employment Projections (EP) program develops information about the labor market for the Nation as a whole for 10 years in the future.

NOTICE The EP program is proposing a new method for measuring occupational separations that would replace the current method of measuring replacements needs. Information about the proposed change is available at www.bls.gov/emp/ep_separations.htm.

NOTICE The EP program released a new publication on the relationship between consumer spending and employment in the October 2014 Monthly Labor Review. See "Consumer spending and U.S. employment from the 2007—2009 recession through 2022" by Stephanie Hugie Barello.
