In 2001, most new and emerging (N&E) occupations were in establishments with fewer than 100 employees, while the largest establishments accounted for the smallest percentage of N&E occupations.
No single industry dominated in the creation and growth of new and emerging occupations; more than one-half were distributed among human services, transportation, communications, business and personal services, and a wide variety of wholesale and retail trade activities.
Some of the N&E occupations reported in 2001 included:
