Labor Market Information: Win-Win Network Community of Practice

Using E-Tools to Identify Occupations (podcast)

Posted by LMI Win-Win Network - On February 27, 2012 (EST)

This presentation will show you how to use the Bureau of Labor Statistics’ Occupational Employment Statistics program — called OES for short — to investigate data on occupations, both nationally and in your area. The OES program is the government’s most geographically-detailed source of information on detailed occupations (and the principal source for BLS and state employment projections). The OES program collects data on employees in nonfarm establishments for about 800 occupations.


The podcast itself can be played by clicking on the arrow pointing right, in the bottom left corner inside the large black box. If the box appears entirely black, simply click the refresh button on your Internet browser. To expand it to the entire screen, go to the bottom of the box, and click on the 4 small arrows pointing outward (just to the left of the word “vimeo”).


The identical lesson can be viewed in a 2-page printed version at Using E-Tools to Identify Occupations (transcript).
