Measuring Middle-Skills Occupational Gaps: Advanced Manufacturing in Central New York


Integrated Post-Secondary Education Data System (IPEDS). GAP ANALYSIS This measurement estimates the deficit or surplus of workers across the region for a given occupational group by comparing the number of trained program completers against the estimated annual demand. Formula: Total Annual Completions – Estimated Annual Job Openings = Estimated Gap Source(s): Completions are derived from IPEDS; 2015 workforce figures were derived from EMSI Analyst, and regional survey data where applicable. CROSSWALKS Are based on input provided by O*NET’s CIP-to- SOC crosswalk, MCC program-related faculty and CNY regional industry partners (MACNY). OCCUPATIONAL GROUP HOURLY WAGES This is an aggregate curve of the weighted group averages for each hourly wage percentile level. ASSUMPTIONS AND LIMITATIONS ■ All SOC listed at the eight-digit level are based on six-digit level data. ■ Since this report was compiled using big data systems integrating over 90 (Traditional Labor Market Information by Analyst) and 27,000 (Real-Time Labor Market Information by

Labor Insight/Jobs) data sources, some variance may exist when comparing reported figures to a single data point. ■ Occupational groups and related completions are not mutually exclusive since many programs train graduates for a variety of occupations, and knowledge, skill and ability areas are transferrable to additional occupations beyond the scope of this study. ■ The Real-Time Labor Market Information in this report is based on online job postings. Some fields are more prone to use traditional recruiting methods, in which case their demand for middle-skills workers will not be fully represented by this report. GRAPHS Top Skills and Top Skill Cluster data are derived from an occupational cluster jobs query in Labor/Insight based on the July 2012 to July 2015 timeframe.
