Occupational Outlook Handbook: Construction and Extraction Occupations

Occupational Outlook Handbook: Construction and Extraction Occupations

Republished with permission of the US Bureau of Labor Statistics

Employment in construction and extraction occupations is projected to grow 4 percent from 2019 to 2029, about as fast as the average for all occupations, and gain about 296,300 new jobs. Overall growth in the economy and population will increase demand for new buildings, roads, and other structures, which will create new jobs in construction and extraction occupations.

The median annual wage for all construction and extraction occupations was $48,610 in May 2020, which was higher than the median annual wage for all occupations of $41,950.

BLS provides summary data, including employment projections, for construction and extraction occupations not shown in the table on this page. That information is available on the Data for Occupations Not Covered in Detail page.
