The composition and quality of the workforce is constantly changing in response to economic forces, social trends, and technology. As a result, old occupations may grow or decline in employment and new occupations may emerge. The occupations discussed here are those that either have not appeared in the Bureau of Labor Statistics Occupational Employment Survey in previous years or are appearing with increased frequency. New occupations have been most likely to appear in the services and distribution industries, but every sector has been affected to some degree.
