2022 Labor Demand Occupations List: Methodology

Two professionals working over desk covered with papers.

The Labor Demand Occupations List (LDOL) for 2022 uses an updated methodology to determine which occupations are expected to have a “significant excess of demand over supply for adequately trained workers.” The 2022 LDOL will be in effect on July 1, 2022. Given New Jersey’s relatively small size, there is a single statewide list for all occupations. 

The 2022 Labor Demand Occupations List was developed by New Jersey Department of Labor and Workforce Development, Office of Research and Information.
