I was searching the BLS website for current and projected job growth by city but instead it is showing by occupation. I called and spoke to them and they told me they only have national data and you can go to projectionscentral.com which has job data but it is data that each individual state is providing. I hear from many sources that the BLS has this job growth data but where is it supposed to be? Am I supposed to be looking at something else? They do show unemployment but only by state. I heard a great recommendation today called bestplaces.net under "Job market" when you search for a specific city or zip code. This website scrapes information from many governmental and major national organizations (including bureau of labor statistics) I want to cross reference the data I am finding there with BLS or something else. Anyone else using bestplaces.net and care to review? Is it reliable?
