The system uses data from several sources to give you the most comprehensive information that we can. The data is updated on a regular basis, and generally follows the release schedules for each source.

  • O*NET - A new version of the O*NET database is released in June of each year. More information on the O*NET release schedule can be found at
  • OES Wages - Wages are released annually and are generally published around May or June for the prior calendar year
  • OES Projections - Projections are released every other year
