Findings:

  • O*NET describes this sector as “activities by public and private organizations associated with conservation and pollution prevention, regulations enforcement, and policy analysis and advocacy,” many of which are higher-skilled activities. For that reason, the bulk of occupations in this sector require at least a Bachelor’s degree.
  • Many of these occupations don’t have a huge presence, but some growth has taken place from 2007-2009. Transportation inspectors (7%) and Conservation scientists (8%) have been especially healthy.
  • All these occupations become more in-demand when retirements and out-migration (i.e. replacement jobs) come into the equation.
