This collection of state-level analyses details promising occupations expected to experience growth through 2022 that someone can enter after completing a relatively short-term training.

This product includes an introductory piece and ten appendices comprised of tables with state-level findings for each of the ACF Regions. The tables include information for the U.S. as a whole, all 50 states, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico.
