Staffing Pattern
Updated over a week ago

Staffing patterns show the occupational makeup of an industry in percentages. For example, a (simplified) staffing pattern for the industry “Hospitals” might show that 10% of jobs in the hospitals industry are occupied by surgeons, 15% by general practitioners, 20% by nurses, 5% by information technology support staff, 5% by janitors, 1% by chief executives, and so on. See also Inverse Staffing Pattern.


US: Primarily the national OES staffing pattern, combined with projections from the National Industry-Occupation Employment Matrix and Lightcast’s proprietary employment data.

CA: Primarily the industry by occupation percentages from the Census at the provincial level and Lightcast’s proprietary employment data.
