BLS Data on Green Jobs : The green career articles include information from sources outside of BLS and are cited accordingly. BLS data on green jobs are available through three surveys:
The Green Technologies and Practices survey asked approximately 35,000 business establishments about their use of green technologies and practices and the occupations of workers who spend more than half of their time involved in green technologies and practices.
The Green Goods and Services industry component includes approximately 120,000 business and government establishments that produce any goods or services. The survey provides estimates of the number of jobs in each industry that are associated with the production of green goods and services.
The Green Goods and Services Occupations (GGS-OCC) program provides occupational employment and wage information for businesses that produce green goods and services. The GGS-OCC data consist of occupational employment, staffing patterns, and occupational wages.
