Occupational Employment Statistics
The Occupational Employment Statistics (OES) program under Bureau of Labor Statistics produces employment and wage estimates annually for nearly 800 occupations. Browse through the website and pick an industry of your interest and answer the following two questions in your main post: 1) What is the trend of the employment in this particular industry in a particular state/metropolitan area/local county in the last 5-10 years? 2) How has the industry been affected by public health crisis such as the covid-19 pandemic or natural disasters such as hurricane or tropical storms? Support your opinions with statistical evidence or relevant economic articles. In the end, don’t forget to raise a meaningful question to keep the discussion moving. You are strongly encouraged to do research on your topic with at least one reference citation (web citation acceptable) in APA style. Please provide your citation/reference at the end of each post.
