Dynamic Occupational & Industry Data for Massachusetts.
About the Technology Workforce Dashboard
The Technology Workforce Dashboard illustrates dynamic technology occupational and industry data, providing several takeaway statistics about the Massachusetts technology workforce and its economic importance. The dashboard emphasizes key facets of technology employment across all industries, with a focus on professions that draw graduates with science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) degrees. Along with visualizations of data directly related to occupations, such as educational attainment, pipeline, earnings, skills in demand, and job growth, the dashboard breaks down demographic data, including age distribution, gender, and race-ethnicity, by technology job type.
Data in the Workforce Dashboard corresponds to occupational and industry codes defined in the Purdue technology-based knowledge occupation cluster. The Purdue industry and occupation clusters were created through a joint project between the Center for Regional Development at Purdue University and labor market analytics firm, Emsi, as tools to explore economic competitiveness. The industry clusters are based on an analysis of interconnected industries that benefit from being near each other and occupation clusters on an assessment of similarities in knowledge and skills for occupations in the region.
