Employment Projections Data: Lawyers

Added By selene

The dataset from the National Employment Matrix provides the projected employment numbers for lawyers in the United States. The dataset divides the data by industry, while comparing 2008 figures with projected 2018 figures.

The Employment Projections Program:
Job openings result from the relationship between the population, labor force, and demand for goods and services. The population restricts the size of the labor force, which consists of working individuals and those looking for work. The size and productivity of the labor force limits the quantity of goods and services that can be produced. In addition, changes in the demand for goods and services influence which industries expand or contract. Industries respond by hiring the workers necessary to produce goods and provide services. However, improvements to technology and productivity, changes in which occupations perform certain tasks, and changes to the supply of workers all affect which occupations will be employed by those industries. Examining past and present changes to these relationships in order to project future shifts is the foundation of the Employment Projections Program.
