As we consider what parts of the labor market thrived in 2016 and what will continue to gain momentum in 2017, it’s hard to miss the demand for data scientists: people who are, according to SAS, “part mathematician, part computer scientist, and part trend spotter” and “straddle both the business and IT worlds” to analyze complex business problems using large datasets.
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.
With 8% growth since 2010, the 16-county region of Charlotte-Gastonia-Rock Hill, N.C.-S.C., has more than recovered its recession losses and is now riding near the crest of the nation’s 100 largest MSAs in terms of jobs added.
Recently CareerBuilder released a list of 10 “hot jobs” in the Toronto labour market, using EMSI data to pinpoint occupations that were adding jobs. We thought we’d look closer at the data.
New York isn’t exactly making any waves with its sluggish snapback after the 2008 recession — especially compared to other states like North Dakota or Texas. New York City itself, however, has ridden out the meltdown better than analysts expected.
Sorting through the hundreds of 4-digit industry classifications in our Canadian data, we managed to find a few genuinely surprising industries that have grown – or declined – at eye-catching rates.
CareerBuilder CEO Matt Ferguson appeared on Bloomberg TV to discuss EMSI and CareerBuilder’s look at the best jobs that require a bachelor’s degree, based on 2010-2012 job growth
For each top job, we used EMSI data to derive the occupation’s growth, the estimated total number of jobs in 2012, a brief description of the occupation, the top three cities for concentration, and finally the wage curve.
Here’s our exploration of the top jobs in North Carolina for 2012. The results? Healthcare occupations and network systems/data communication analysts are among the jobs to keep an eye on.
In this post, we identify some of the best occupations in Alabama for 2012, using three primary metrics: pay, concentration, and growth since 2007. This is all based purely on labor market data analysis based on EMSI’s latest data.
