How We Determine the INDemand Jobs in Indiana
The Indiana Flame Ranking is calculated for each occupation by using Short term (2017-2019) Job Projection Data and Long Term (2016-2026) Job Projection Data. Job Projection Data is developed following the rules and jurisdiction of the US Department of Labor’s Employment & Training Administration. Indiana occupations score a rank from 1 to 10 in the categories below to produce a both short term and long term outlook rating. Once the outlook scores are calculated, the scores are averaged to assign a flame ranking (1 to 5) to each occupation.
- Total Openings (2 & 10 year projected openings including new and backfill positions)
- Growth Openings (growth openings by occupation)
- Percentage Change (from base year to projected year)
- Real Time Labor Market Information, (job posting data from online job boards collected by Burning Glass Technologies)
- Wages (Bureau of Labor Statistics 2016 Wage Estimates)
As new projections and wage data is received, the flames are recalculated. Recalculation will occur quarterly. Where wage data is not available in Indiana, national wage data is used for those occupations.
Why do the Fastest Growing INDemand Jobs Matter?
Our statewide employer partners have helped to identify priority industry sectors and the industry related jobs that are most in demand. These high-demand, high-wage jobs require specially-trained and skilled workers. These jobs are available now and will continue to grow over the next 10 years.
To meet the challenge ahead, we partner with area workforce development professionals, employer partners and education and training providers, to help create and deliver programs, tools and education pathways for students, parents and job seekers and more to ensure they will have the resources needed to secure sustainable employment in an INDemand Job.
