Forecasting Career Demand in PA through 2018

The Georgetown University Center on Education and the Workforce recently released a report entitled Career Clusters-Forecasting Demand for High School Through College Job, 2008-2018: State Data. The report provides state by state:

  • Job totals and job percentages by career cluster and education level in the base year (2008), and the forecast year (2018);
  • Estimates of postsecondary vocational certificates by career cluster; and
  • Comparisons of career clusters implemented in each state to total jobs by career cluster in each state

Highlights of the PA State Brief (found on page 60) include:

  • Health Science is the fastest growing sector in PA (will increase 17% by 2018).
  • The second and third fastest growing sectors will be Human Services and Information Technology (each will increase by 15%).
  • The sector with the most jobs lost will be Manufacturing (down by 5%).
