How Accurate Are Recent BLS Occupational Projections?
Bishop, John H.; Carter, Shani
Monthly Labor Review, v114 n10 p37-43 Oct 1991
Assessment of Bureau of Labor Statistics' projections found that those published in the early 1970s were based on extrapolating past rates of change and were remarkably accurate. Changed methodology in the 1980s has resulted in significant underprojections of the rapid growth in higher skilled professional and managerial jobs and overprojection of growth in lower skilled jobs.
