The DOL uses the Dictionary of Occupational Titles as one of its references and the data is out of date.

So while the number of Reporters and Correspondents are expected to decline by -8%, how will the new reporting titles such as Blogger, Twitter Communicator, or Social Media Liaison fare? Increase perhaps?

Let's look at Computer Programmers: A -3% doesn't make sense. Increased use of smartphones will require a concomitant increase in the number of developers writing code. It's tough to extrapolate from the number of people studying computer science or engineering because many don't - yet still are inclined to become programmers. No one in the DOL has yet to figure this out...

There are real-life explanations for why the numbers may be very wrong.

Good post, statistics are bleak. American's need hope--and facts. At least job seekers in the HireFriday Community won't take it personally when they don't find a job quickly.
