The Bureau of Labor Statistics just released the 2016-17 Occupational Outlook Handbook.

Occupational Outlook Handbook 2016-2017The 2016–17 Occupational Outlook Handbook (OOH) was just released by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. The OOH reflects BLS employment projections for the 2014–24 decade. The OOH is one of the nation’s most widely used sources of career information. It provides details on hundreds of occupations and is used by career counselors, students, parents, teachers, jobseekers, career changers, education and training officials, and researchers. The OOH is available online at

The 2016–17 OOH includes 329 occupational profiles covering 576 detailed occupations, or about 83 percent of total employment in 2014. Each occupational profile describes: what workers do, where they work, typical education and training requirements, wages, job outlook, state and area data, and contacts for more information.

Each occupational profile in the 2016-17 OOH includes a new State and Area Data tab with links to occupational profiles from the Occupational Employment Statistics survey. Users can access detailed national, state, and metropolitan or nonmetropolitan employment and wage data for their selected occupation. The new tab also provides a link to state occupational projections. State occupational employment projections are developed for all states by Labor Market Information (LMI) offices. Information on this site allows users to compare projected occupational employment growth among states or within one state. The 10-year projections of industry and occupational employment are revised every 2 years.
