November 1991, Vol. 114,
projections: findings and implications
Ronald E. Kutscher
Assistant Commissioner, Office or
Employment Projections, Bureau of Labor Statistics
Alternative projections show a considerable
range of change for the labor force, gross national product, and
in employment and unemployment. Under all assumptions, job
opportunities vary by industry and occupation. This article
summarizes the major findings from each topic and highlights some
important implications flowing from the projections, including
(1) education and training needed for the projected jobs, (2)
variation in job opportunities for those with different levels of
education, (3) the range of the three alternatives prepared by
BLS and their employment and other implications, and (4) the
changing race, age, and sex mix of the labor force.
