For the few metropolitan areas becoming more specialized in design jobs, there are a few surprises at the top of the list. Some have merely performed a little better than the nation and others are seeing substantial upticks after the downturn.
Data & Analysis
In a new analysis with CareerBuilder, we used shift share — a standard economic analysis method in Analyst, EMSI’s labor market research tool — to tease out the number of new jobs from 2010 to 2013 in each of the 50 most populous metros that can be traced to regional factors as opposed to national trends.
For the 10 metros poised to grow the quickest through 2018, we explored our data with CareerBuilder to identify the fastest-growing occupations inside the temp sector. These numbers come from Analyst, EMSI’s labor market research tool.
Someone is selling sales jobs—but perhaps not fast enough. The labor market data in Analyst (EMSI’s online labor market data tool) shows that sales & related occupations (SOC 41-000) have added a projected 775,000 new jobs across the U.S. from 2010 to 2014, more than almost any other occupation group since the recession.

For the past 10 years, EMSI has provided structural labor market data via Analyst, a web-based labor market analysis tool used broadly by higher education, economic development, workforce development and business professionals.

In our latest piece for Forbes, we isolated four regions—Upstate New York, Bakersfield, Pittsburgh, and New Orleans—that have bucked the national trend and substantially increased their share of millennial workers from 2007 to 2013.
To show the direction of some of Illinois’s largest detailed industries, Crain’s Chicago Business analyzed EMSI’s year-by-year industry data, looking back since 2009 and projecting forward through 2018.
The data epiphany has been likened to the invention of the microscope: For the first time, we can see an entire world that we could only guess at before. And with this insight comes the demand for people who know how to interpret what they see.
We used EMSI’s recently released 2014.1 dataset for Canada to identify the occupations that are projected to add the most jobs from 2013 to 2014. The data revealed some perennial favourites, as well as some surprises.
The number of young workers aged 22-34 nationwide is basically unchanged since 2007, while the number of jobs for boomers (55-64) — fueled by mega population growth — has climbed 9% over that time, according to a new analysis from EMSI and CareerBuilder.
