Projections for the Ohio work force from 1994-2005 indicate the future supply of workers will increase from 5.537 million to 6.077 million. The demographic composition of the labor force is expected to change as Ohio's population ages and work force participation continues to increase. The bulk of Ohio's labor force will be in the 35-54 age group. A slight declining trend for men and moderate increase in women's participation will continue. The labor force 55 years of age and older will grow faster than the younger labor force. The minority share of Ohio's labor force will continue to increase. The value of output produced in Ohio, gross state product, is expected to increase by 2.2 percent. Per capita income relative to the United States is expected to remain steady. The Ohio economy is projected to create more than 700,000 new jobs. Service-producing industries will account for virtually all job growth. Professional, paraprofessional, and technical workers represent the largest major occupation category which is projected to grow at the fastest rate. Health occupations will account for one in six new jobs. In general, the Ohio economy will provide jobs for workers at all educational levels, but individuals with more education and training will enjoy better job opportunities. (Following an executive summary are these sections: 31 charts and tables illustrating the findings; industry employment projections report using Standard Industrial Classification codes; and occupational employment projections report using Dictionary of Occupational Titles codes.)
