* Labor Market Exit Openings are the projected number of workers leaving an occupation and exiting the labor market entirely (most labor force exits are related to workers retiring). Occupational transfers are the projected number of workers permanently leaving an occupation and transferring to a different occupation.
** Total Openings represent the sum of job openings from employment growth, labor force exits, and occupational transfers.
