White, Martha C.
Occupational Outlook Quarterly, v32 n1 p10-45 Spr 1988
This article summarizes the employment outlook in 225 occupations as projected by the Bureau of Labor Statistics. It provides thumbnail sketches of employment data for each of the occupations in the 1988-89 "Occupational Outlook Handbook," on which it is based. Each entry presents the occupation's title, 1986 employment numbers, the percent change projected in employment between 1986 and 2000, the numerical change projected in employment between 1986 and 2000, and a summary of the job prospects for the occupation. The occupations are grouped in the following 18 clusters: managerial and management-related occupations; engineers, surveyors, and architects; natural, computer, and mathematics scientists; lawyers, social scientists, social workers, and religious workers; teachers, librarians, and counselors; health diagnosing practitioners; health assessing and treating occupations; writers, artists, and entertainers; technician occupations; marketing and sales occupations; administrative support occupations, including clerical; service occupations; agriculture, forestry, fishing, and related occupations; mechanics, installers, and repairers; construction trades and extractive occupations; production occupations; transportation and materials-moving occupations; and handlers, equipment cleaners, helpers, and laborers. Some overall trends are also profiled in the article. (KC)
