Sources of State and Local Job Outlook Information
Most States have career information delivery systems (CIDS), which may be found in secondary and postsecondary institutions, as well as libraries, job training sites, vocational-technical schools, and employment offices. A wide range of information is provided, from employment opportunities to unemployment insurance claims.
Whereas the Career Guide provides information for industries on a national level, each State has detailed information on industries and labor markets within their respective jurisdictions. State occupational projections are available at: http://www.projectionscentral.com Listed below are the addresses and telephone numbers of the directors of research and analysis in these agencies and Internet addresses of these agencies.
