Significant Information: Economists




  • Slower than average job growth is expected as firms increasingly employ workers to perform more specialized tasks with titles that reflect the specific duties of the job rather than the general title of economist.
  • Job seekers with a background in economics should have good opportunities, although some of these opportunities will be in related occupations.
  • Candidates who hold a masterís or Ph.D. degree in economics will have the best employment prospects and advancement opportunities.
  • Quantitative skills are important in all economics specialties.
