Which occupations are going to be among the best employment opportunities in the future in New Mexico?

The dashboard below provides information on some of the best occupational opportunities in New Mexico. It includes listings of top occupations based on projected job growth and wages. It also presents a listing of occupations expected to experience some of the strongest growth in the near future (In-Demand occupations) and a listing of those In-Demand occupations that have competitive/high wages (Star occupations).

The Economic Research and Analysis Bureau has applied select job growth and wage criteria to occupational projections in order to identify the In-Demand and Star occupations. These criteria, the methodology used to produce these listings, and data definitions are available through the link below.
