An Enumeration of Jobs in New Jersey

Did you know that New Jersey has proportionately more dinkey engine operators than the national average? That registered nurses in New Jersey have an average yearly income of over $77,000? Or that there are only 50 genetic counselors in the state? These occupational data are among the almost 800 specialties profiled in the May 2013 (just released) State Occupational Employment and Wage Estimates: New Jersey from the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Each job title is accompanied by state employment figures, RSEs, local quotients, and hourly/yearly wages (BLS technospeak explained here) with links to national figures for comparative purposes. You can focus in on just one main occupational group or scroll through the bewildering array of jobs located in this state.
