Industries are broad groups of businesses or organizations with similar activities, products, or services. Using the Browse by Industry option, you can select from several industries, or self-employed occupations. Occupations are considered part of an industry based on their employment. In the example that follows, "Health Care and Social Assistance" is selected from the pull-down menu.


The subsequent screen provides a list of occupations where at least 10% of workers are employed within the specified industry. The display also displays projected employment statistics from the Bureau of Labor and Statistics external site.
