Current Demand
Current demand, represented by one to five stars indicating low to high demand, is calculated with data from the Minnesota Job Vacancy Survey, Occupational Employment Statistics, and Unemployment Insurance Statistics. One star, although low, still represents some demand. An occupation with no evidence of demand will display "N/A" or not applicable. Learn more about occupational demand data.

Projected Total Openings
The number of job openings expected between 2020 and 2030.

This includes openings due to replacement (workers leaving the occupation or retiring) as well as growth. Learn more about employment outlook data.
