U.S. Data Release on Green Goods and Service Jobs

On September 28, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics released another of its series of reports on green jobs. Occupational Employment and Wages in Green Goods and Services Summary provides data based on a sample of approximately 93,000 businesses in 333 industries. Using the BLS output approach to measuring green jobs, the GGS-OCC defines green jobs as “jobs in businesses that produce goods or provide services that benefit the environment or conserve natural resources”.
