Employment is projected to increase by 11.5 million over the next decade, an increase from 156.1 million to 167.6 million, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) reports. The new projections are the foundation of the Occupational Outlook Handbook (OOH), one of the nation’s most widely used career information resources.

The updated OOH is now available online. In the past, several months would elapse between the projections' data release and the OOH's physical publication. With the online OOH publication, the delay no longer exists.

Per the projections, health-care industries and their associated occupations are expected to account for a large share of new jobs projected through 2026, as the aging population continues to drive demand for health-care services.

The labor force will continue to grow slowly and to become older and more diverse. The aging population is projected to result in a decline in the overall labor force participation rate over the 2016 to 2026 decade.


With low Unemployment Insurance (UI) claims in today’s labor market, some states are having challenges meeting their projected Reemployment Services and Eligibility Assessment (RESEA) activities.

So the U.S. Department of Labor is offering state workforce agencies flexibility to provide RESEAs to additional UI claimants, besides the currently targeted populations. The currently targeted populations are UI claimants determined most likely to exhaust benefits and transitioning military veterans.

The expansion to additional UI claimants must be supported by local labor market and economic information. Examples of additional populations include claimants in rural areas, claimants approaching the end of UI benefits, claimants from specific industries, and claimants in areas with higher-than-average unemployment rates.

LEAP.PNGStates that wish to serve such additional UI claimants must submit an application and receive approval from their ETA Regional Office.

“One Door. Millions of Success Stories.” That’s the theme of a U.S. Department of Labor infographic describing the investment story of the American Job Center network. The 2,400 American Job Centers across the nation provide career, job search, and training services to job seekers and the unemployed under WIOA.

“In the last program year, more than 13 million Americans—roughly 1 out of every 12.5 people in the U.S. labor force—got the help they needed through the American Job Center network,” states the infographic.

 

Other infographic highlights for the program year include the following:

  • American Job Centers serve a wide range of individuals, including displaced workers, veterans, ex-offenders, youth, victims of natural disasters, workers with disabilities, and older workers.
  • 81 percent of people who received job training found employment.
  • 156,000 people with disabilities found work.
  • 98,500 adults and dislocated workers obtained a credential.
  • 360,000 unemployed military veterans got hired.
  • 2.6 million people receiving unemployment insurance obtained jobs.
