Occupational Employment Projections NJ

The NJ Department of Labor and Workforce Development has a wonderful website at This site includes information links for employment, social services, name it. I use the employment projections a lot. I find the most useful chart is "Estimated and Projected Employment of Detailed Occupation 2006-2016" Notice in the "average annual job openings" how many of the openings are caused by replacements. In other words, the employment does not have to growing for jobs openings to exist.
