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, including the education or training requirements for detailed occupations. These requirements are identified and estimated using one of two different systems developed by the Employment Projections program and are published in the Occupational Projections and Training Data bulletin and in a searchable database on the Employment Projections web site. Presenting data using two different systems has led to some confusion among customers of the Employment Projections program about which system to use and how to use them. BLS is currently soliciting comments on a proposal to revise the two systems into one integrated system.
