Occupational Employment

What it means

The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics Occupational Employment Statistics produces employment and wage estimates for people employed in certain occupations. After 2005, total occupational employment in Barnstable County steadily declined, with its greatest loss between 2008 and 2010 likely due to the recession. Massachusetts and the United States employment figures were growing steadily until 2008, when total employment declined sharply. Since 2010, all areas have recovered slightly.
