Construction Employment Projections

Employment projections are used to forecast the construction industry’s needs for employees and to guide workforce development, in addition to identifying safety and health concerns that may result from growth.

This dashboard, which accompanies CPWR’s March 2022 Data Bulletin, summarizes projections for construction industry employment using national data from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics and state data from Projections Central, a product of the Projections Managing Partnership, which is funded by the U.S. Department of Labor. The dashboard includes employment projections by state, 3-to-5-digit NAICS, and occupation, as well as projected job openings by occupation.

Information on specific charts and instructions for dashboard use are included in the information icon Data Dashboard information icon located to the right of the dashboard.

You can download the data as a spreadsheet. Each worksheet’s name is based on the corresponding dashboard chart.

The dashboard will be updated annually as new data are available, with the next update planned for Spring 2023. If you have questions or comments, please email [email protected].
