Data Notes:

  • Occupation Code: 6-Digit Standard Occupation Classification (SOC)

  • Demand: Labor demand represents the number of postsecondary graduates required by each occupation. It is estimated by taking the fraction of openings that request workers with postsecondary education. This is a propietary data set of Burning Glass Technologies, which compiles the data using online job postings in the region between 2014 and 2018.

  • Supply: Labor supply represents the number of postsecondary graduates per occupation. Burning Glass estimates labor supply by applying national trends for the relationship between degree programs and occupations to local conferral data from the post-secondary colleges and the university within the Corpus Christi metropolitan statistical area. Supply does not consider the percentage of graduates that leave the region; it instead gauges how well graduates can find a job locally if they are interested.

  • Shortage: Excess labor demand, which is the difference between the measures of labor demand and labor supply. A negative number represents excess supply.

  • Mean Salary: The average salary level of the occupation in Corpus Christi in 2019. A zero salary means no data available.

  • Automation Risk: The percent of automation risk represents the likelihood that a computer is able to do a job using existing technology. Burning Glass Technologies utilizes data from a 2013 study by Carl Benedikt Frey and Michael A. Osborne of Oxford University, in which the researchers use a machine learning model to calculate the automation risk of occupations by the likelihood of computerization of the underlying tasks that make up the job.
