The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) publishes 10-year projections of the labor force, the macroeconomy, and detailed industry and occupational employment. Periodically, BLS evaluates prior projections to help data users understand the inherent limitations of the projections methods and to allow an internal review of the underlying assumptions and methods.
Note: Due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on data for 2020, BLS did not evaluate the 2010-20 projections. BLS will resume evaluations with the 2012-22 projections when 2022 data are available.
