This report presents data on job opportunities and skill requirements through 2018 arranged by the 16 career clusters in the Carl D. Perkins Act of 2006. The data are arranged state-by-state and the District of Columbia, from 2008 through 2018. Skill requirements are reflected in the length and extent of educational preparation and training required for the job. Nationally, the demand for high school jobs will decrease from 41 percent of all jobs in 2008 to 37 percent of all jobs in 2018. By the same token, the demand for postsecondary education will increase from 59 percent of all jobs to 63 percent of all jobs by 2018. This state report provides state by state: (1) Job totals and job percentages by career cluster and education level in the base year (2008), and the forecast year (2018); (2) Estimates of postsecondary vocational certificates by career cluster; and (3) Comparison of career clusters implemented in each state to total jobs by career cluster in each state. In so doing, the authors highlight high demand career clusters within states that are not tied to distinct career pathways. Interesting highlights include: (1) Information Technology (23%), Health Sciences (21%) and Human Services (20%) are the three fastest growing job clusters for the nation: (a) Nevada (41%), Virginia (38%), Utah (37%), Washington (32%) and Arkansas (31%) are the fastest growing states for Information Technology; (b) Nevada (46%), Utah (35%), Idaho (33%), Colorado (33%) and Texas (32%) are the fastest growing states for Health Sciences; and (c) Nevada (40%), Utah (33%), Texas (31%), Colorado (29%) and Vermont (28%) are the fastest growing states for Human Services; (2) The highest proportion of STEM jobs as a fraction of all state employment are found in the District of Columbia, Massachusetts, Michigan, Washington and Maryland; and (3) The highest proportion of health science jobs as a fraction of all state employment are found in the District of Columbia, Vermont, Idaho, South Dakota and New Jersey. Appended are: (1) List of Occupations and Career Clusters; and (2) List of Career Clusters and Job Totals Per Cluster. (Contains 5 footnotes.)
