SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Backgound The Department of Labor through the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) is responsible for the development and publication of occupational employment projections and related career information. One element of the projections is estimates of job openings due to growth and replacement needs. Replacement needs measure openings that result from workers leaving an occupation for reasons such as retirement or career changes. BLS has developed a new method for measuring openings that estimates occupational separations. An experimental dataset comparing results from the current and alternate method, along with a description of the new method, is ready for users to provide feedback. II. New Method DEPARTMENT OF LABOR Bureau of Labor Statistics Comment Request Bureau of Labor Statistics, Department of Labor. ACTION: Notice for solicitation of comments. AGENCY: The Bureau of Labor Statistics is seeking comments on the proposed new method for projecting occupational separations. An experimental dataset comparing results from the current and alternate method, along with a description of the new method, is ready for users to review and provide feedback. DATES: Written comments must be submitted to the office listed in the EMCDONALD on DSK67QTVN1PROD with NOTICES SUMMARY: The new method uses historical data to measure two types of workers who separate from their current occupation. Workers who leave their current occupation and find employment in a different occupation (occupational transfers) are measured using the Current Population Survey (CPS) Annual Social and Economic Supplement (ASEC), while workers who leave the labor force entirely (labor force exits) are measured using matched monthly data from the CPS. This historical data is used in a probit model to estimate the effects of various demographic characteristics, then the results of the model are applied to the current demographics of an occupation to estimate future occupational separations. A more detailed description of the methodology is available here: Current terminology 20:00 May 15, 2014 Jkt 232001 PO 00000 III. Terminology BLS also proposes using new terminology for this data. As noted above, the new methodology measures separations, while the current methodology measures replacements, so BLS would replace the data series descriptor ‘Replacement Needs’ with ‘Occupational Separations’ and the data series descriptor ‘Replacement Rates’ with ‘Occupational Separation Rates’. In addition, the current data series descriptor ‘Job Openings due to Growth and Replacement Needs’ is similar in form, but conceptually different from another BLS data source, the Job Openings and Labor Turnover Survey. BLS proposes to rename this data series ‘Openings due to Employment Change and Occupational Separations’. Proposed new terminology Replacement Needs ................................................................................. Replacement Rates .................................................................................. VerDate Mar<15>2010 http://www.bls.gov/emp/ep_ separations_methods.htm. The new method is conceptually similar to the current method, with the following key distinctions: • The new method measures separations, while the current method measures replacements. Replacements are equal to separations for growing occupations, but not for declining occupations. The current method adjusts for declining occupations within the calculation, while the new method adjusts after calculation using the BLS occupational employment projections. • The new method measures two distinct sources of separations, separations that result from workers transferring to a different occupation, and separations that result from workers exiting the labor force altogether, and reports them both separately and as a combined measure. The current method provides just one measure for all replacements. • Both the current method and the new method estimate replacements or separations due to workers permanently leaving an occupation. The current method does this by excluding separations from workers in the same age cohort as workers who enter the occupation. The new method does this by only measuring separations from workers who transfer to a different major occupational group, or who exit the labor force for at least 4 months. Additional information on why BLS is proposing this alternate methodology is available here: http://www.bls.gov/emp/ ep_separations_change.htm. Frm 00084 Fmt 4703 Occupational Separations. Occupational Separation Rate. Sfmt 4703 E:\FR\FM\16MYN1.SGM 16MYN1
