Education and Training Projections
Occupations in Missouri are as diverse as the people who fill them. They encompass various levels of educational attainment, and differing time periods of training. The demand for occupations changes with the times, and new or emerging occupations grow at a faster rate than their more established counterparts. With a growth rate of 12.2% over the projected 10 year period, occupations requiring an Associate’s Degree are expected to experience the fastest rate of growth.
