Geoscience Currents #111: Total Employment in the Geosciences, 2014
With the Status of the Geoscience Workforce 2016 publication due out shortly, AGI is sharing a change to their interpretation of the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics data in order to estimate the size of the geoscience workforce in the United States. The updated count of geoscientists in the workforce in 2014 includes the BLS counts of atmospheric sciences, earth sciences, marine sciences, space sciences, environmental sciences, and geography postsecondary teachers. AGI is projecting a 10% increase in the number of employed geoscientists over the next decade.
