  1. American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 State Labor Market Information Improvement Grants (SGA/DFA PY 08-17)

  2. Purpose of the LMI Improvement Grant Determine the work force implications of green jobs and industry How: Collect, analyze, and disseminate labor market information about careers in the green economy.

  3. Why do the research? The BLS system of NAICS and SOC codes are not designed to adequately capture the green economy. • Difficult to distinguish from a job title whether the job is green or not • Green jobs are not limited to certain NAICS

  4. What is a Green Job?  Wind Turbine Technician  Solar Installer ? Civil Engineer ? Electrician ? Mechanic ? Truck Driver

  5. Where do we find Green Jobs? Utilities? Construction? Agriculture? Manufacturing?

  6. Develop the methodology to continue this research in the future. Our Major Goals Identified in the Grant: • Identify industries and occupations that contribute to Idaho’s green economy • Identify education and skill requirements for green jobs • Estimate green employment levels • Estimate green wage levels • Develop projections of green employment • Develop media and Web analytical tools for customers and stakeholders • Communicate results to the public

  7. Phases • Data Collection • Literature Review • Develop a Definition • Preliminary Business Scan • Job Vacancy Survey /Green Jobs Survey / Certifications Survey • Data Analysis: Comprehensive Green Jobs Report • Develop Career Ladders/Lattices for Green Jobs • Employment, Wages, Education, Training and Skills Gaps • Economic Impact analysis • Projections • Outreach • Enhance Idaho’s Career Information System (from survey findings) • Public Education and Outreach • Web-based analytical tools for green jobs • Career ladders and lattices for green jobs

  8. First Phase: Data Collection • Literature Review • Develop a Definition • Preliminary Business Scan • Surveys • Job Vacancy Survey • Green Jobs Survey • Certifications Survey

  9. Literature Review Hundreds of reports on green jobs or the green economy. • O*NET • Pew • The National Governors Association Center for Best Practices (NGA Center) Other states have already done a green jobs survey and have identified green industries and occupations in their economy. • Washington • Michigan • Oregon • California

  10. Other States’ Green Jobs • California - 3.7% of work force is green • Washington - 1.6% of work force is green • Oregon - 3.0% of work force is green • Michigan - 3.0% of work force is green

  11. Developing a definition • We reviewed other states’ definitions and one developed by the Workforce Information Council • We adapted WIC’s definition and ensured it included all of the targeted industries and occupations listed in the grant

  12. Green Job Definition A green job is one in which the work is essential to products or services in any of these core green areas: • Renewable Energy and Alternative Fuels • Energy Efficiency and Conservation • Sustainable Agriculture and Natural Resource Conservation • Pollution and Waste Prevention, Reduction and Management and Environmental Cleanup

  13. Business Scan Using O*NET Taxonomy and other State’s definitions, we have estimated Idaho’s green economy. Hope to use this as a baseline to compare our survey results O*NET SOC – 140 Unique SOC NAICS – 41 3-digit NAICS identified from other states as potential targeted industries

  14. Vacancy Survey • Our first ever vacancy survey • Funded with WIA healthcare and green jobs grant money • Surveying randomly selected 5000 Idaho businesses by mail • Screening question to determine industries to sample for green jobs • In field April 1; report available August 31

  15. Green Jobs Survey • Showpiece of the grant • Survey 5000 randomly selected Idaho businesses by mail • Will ask for employers to identify jobs and occupational information related to our green definition. • In field in June 21, report available in Dec.

  16. Mailing Insert

  17. Skills and Certifications Survey • Interview and talk with program directors of green related programs • Green related skills • Educational opportunities for green jobs • Completion rates for green training programs

  18. Develop the methodology to continue this research in the future. Our Major Goals Identified in the Grant: • Identify industries and occupations that contribute to Idaho’s green economy • Identify education and skill requirements for green jobs • Estimate green employment levels • Estimate green wage levels • Develop projections of green employment • Develop media and Web analytical tools for customers and stakeholders • Communicate results to the public

  19. Second phase: Data Analysis Comprehensive Green Jobs Report • Employment, Wages, Education, Training and Skills Gaps • Develop Career Ladders/Lattices for Green Jobs • Projections • Economic Impact analysis

  20. Internal Deliverables • Idaho Comprehensive Green Jobs Research Report • Due December 2010 • Expected Results comparable to other states

  21. Develop the methodology to continue this research in the future. Our Major Goals Identified in the Grant: • Identify industries and occupations that contribute to Idaho’s green economy • Identify education and skill requirements for green jobs • Estimate green employment levels • Estimate green wage levels • Develop projections of green employment • Develop media and Web analytical tools for customers and stakeholders • Communicate results to the public

  22. Phase 3: Deliver Results to the Public • Inform Idaho’s Career Information System (with information reported from surveys) • Public Education and Outreach • Web-based analytical tools for green jobs • Career ladders and lattices for green jobs

  23. Develop the methodology to continue this research in the future. Our Major Goals Identified in the Grant: • Identify industries and occupations that contribute to Idaho’s green economy • Identify education and skill requirements for green jobs • Estimate green employment levels • Estimate green wage levels • Develop projections of green employment • Develop media and Web analytical tools for customers and stakeholders • Communicate results to the public
