There have been reports of phone calls made from a Department of Labor phone number (202-693-2700) soliciting personal information and/or promising funds to those receiving the calls. These calls were not authorized by the Department of Labor. ETA and the Department of Labor do not and will not solicit Personally Identifiable Information, such as your Social Security number, or other personal information, over the phone. If you receive a call like this from a number that looks like an ETA phone number, consider it a spam call, hang up, and report the call to the US Department of Labor at 1-855-522-6748.

For more information about how to recognize spam calls, please reference the IRS site about recognizing these imposter calls: https://www.irs.gov/newsroom/how-to-know-its-really-the-irs-calling-or-knocking-on-your-door-0

Using this resource

Wherever possible, we have included a direct link to a specific data source that contains the greatest amount of information (especially a table, as opposed to a customized Web query), but you may wish to look elsewhere on the state’s Web site to determine if the same data are available in a different electronic format.  Some states provide information as an alternative to short-term projections, such as job vacancy (i.e., job openings) surveys. Therefore it’s a good idea to use the main LMI site to conduct a search (a feature not all states offer) or to examine the site map (if available) to look for other relevant data. If a cell in the table below is empty, this means that the state does not post this specific item online.  If a cell in one of the "Locality coverage" columns indicates coverage but there is no Internet link, the data can be found in the closest cell to the left with an Internet link.  NOTE:  For states marked like this, Maine, it is not possible to establish a bookmark directly to some or all of the hyperlinks below. Therefore, although the hyperlink includes the correct URL address, clicking on it will not lead one to the projections site.  We have informed the responsible parties of this situation. 

BLS and ETA background

For background on national employment projections, see the BLS employment projections homepage, and for background on state employment projections see the background section at the end of this document.  The states basically follow the BLS projections methodology, but are free to adapt it (subject to BLS review) to special state or local conditions. Some states post an explanation of their projections methodology.
