Occupational Employment and Wages
Major Industry Staffing Pattern Data for Specific Occupations
The Massachusetts Department of Unemployment Assistance has produced occupational employment and wage industry staffing pattern data for the Commonwealth and for the 16 Workforce Development Areas (WDA's). The May 2019 data are available. Though these estimates were produced using the BLS methodology, they are not official BLS estimates.
To obtain a list of major industries that employ a specific occupation, please select the specific occupation from the drop-down menus below. The published data, in Excel format, includes the major industries that employ the occupation along with the occupation's employment figure and hourly and annual mean, median, entry and experienced wages.
With the May 2019 estimates, the OES program has begun implementing the 2018 Standard Occupational Classification (SOC) system. OES estimates are calculated from six panels of survey data collected over three years. Because the May 2019 estimates are based on a combination of survey data collected using the 2010 SOC and survey data collected using the 2018 SOC, these estimates use a hybrid of the two classification systems that contains some combinations of occupations that are not found in either the 2010 or 2018 SOC. These combinations may include occupations from more than one 2018 SOC minor group or broad occupation. Therefore, OES will not publish data for some 2018 SOC minor groups and broad occupations in the May 2019 estimates. The May 2021 estimates, to be published in Spring 2022, will be the first OES estimates based entirely on survey data collected using the 2018 SOC.
In addition, the OES program has replaced some 2018 SOC detailed occupations with SOC broad occupations or OES-specific aggregations. These include home health aides and personal care aides, for which OES will publish only the 2018 SOC broad occupation 31-1120 Home Health and Personal Care Aides.
It should be noted that these are Pre Covid-19 Estimates.
