Staffing Patterns


Staffing patterns embrace two related concepts:

  • Major occupations found within a particular industry
  • Industries that employ the most workers within a particular occupation.

Only statewide staffing patterns data are presented here and are intended to provide users with a general idea of the distribution of occupations within an industry or the distribution across industries of workers in an occupation.

Staffing patterns have several important applications. For workforce development purposes, workforce investment boards and training providers may use the lists to identify the principal occupations in key, targeted industries. Jobseekers will find them useful for contacting employers in appropriate industries for job openings.

They are also important for economic development purposes. For example, local or state economic development officials trying to assess whether a region has sufficient labor supply to staff a particular type of industry or facility can use staffing patterns to compare the company's demand for various job titles to the region's supply.
