Career Clusters Ranked by Growth

The bar graph and table rank all 16 career clusters by total job change over the given timeframe. The “Replacement Jobs” column indicates the total replacement jobs in the cluster expected to come available during the entire timeframe. The “% Change/Rep.” column is derived by taking the total new and replacement jobs in the cluster and dividing that by the total jobs in the cluster. In other words, it shows the total openings in the cluster as a percentage of the total jobs in the cluster. The "Hourly Earnings" column gives the averaged median hourly earnings of all occupations in the cluster.
