Yeah, saw someone post this on a listserve a few days back. A few years ago I tore apart the 2008 version of this. There are some serious flaws in the BLS numbers.

The only part they probably don't have wrong is the growth. That is only because the numbers are from 2010 in the midst of the deepest recession in 70 years. All fields are going to have great growth after that.

Thanks Dwarmour, reminded me I need to write about this.

No problem.  I don't trust their growth predictions either.  I would also be curious if other fields related to infrastructure and development are also predicted to grow as equally as I would think the private sector growth in archaeology would be tied to these industries.
