Occupational Projections

Every year, the North Carolina Department of Commerce studies national, statewide, and local economic trends to produce long-term and short-term occupational projections for state and substate areas. Based on historical data, these projections provide a guide for how the state occupational landscape may evolve given the current economic trends. The current projections for statewide cover the years 2014 to 2024 for approximately 800 occupations. The 2014-2024 projections for Prosperity Zones will be released early next year.
