That goes to my other point it is a projection, which is complete B.S. anyways. I guarantee you none of what they say today on any of those jobs will be accurate. There is no way to predict how economy in generally goes if the government was capable of doing that maybe they would be 14 trillion in debt.
If they can't get a guesstimate on a large scale how can they possibly project all the different factors that come into play for a specific industry. If another 9/11 attack thing happens tourism, air travel will go down signfianclty hurting pilots. If Obamacare is passed the health care profession will be affect maybe positively maybe negatively, but it is certainly a big reform that will have an impact and nobody knows what will happen with that.
If in 2018 Nurses have horrible job prospects will anyone say the Department of Labor in 2011 really screwed up. Answer is no they will change their prediction next year and the year after that and nobody will even know what is going on. So point of the rant who cares what some government entity projects 10 years down the future.
