These publications provide comprehensive, up-to-date, and reliable labor market information that has helped millions of Americans plan their future work lives. The Handbook and the Career Guide discuss prospective changes in the job market and the qualifications sought by employers, information that is widely used by counselors, students, job seekers, education and training officials, and researchers.
