This InfoBrief is a report of employment and earnings growth for people employed in science and engineering (S&E), technology, and other S&E-related occupations, based on data derived from the Bureau of Labor Statistics' Occupational Employment Statistics Survey (OES). Information about metropolitan areas that have high rates of employment in S&E occupations is also provided.

Employment by Occupation Group


Employment in S&E occupations[2] in the United States reached an estimated 5,781,000 by May 2008. This number was up 13.7% (a 3.3% average annual rate[3]) from 5,086,000 in May 2004, compared to the 5.5% increase in employment in all occupations (a 1.3% average annual rate) for the same time period.


Estimates of employment by broad occupational group within science and engineering are shown in table 1, along with occupations considered to be related to S&E. The 5.8 million individuals in S&E occupations represented 4.3% of all employment counted by the OES.
