Promising careers are available to TANF recipients and other low-income workers with a relatively short-term investment in education and training. Almost all states offer estimates—called projections—of how occupations will grow over a 10-year period. When paired with data on the education and training required for each occupation, as well as earnings potential and the number of jobs available per year, these data paint a picture of the jobs that will be available in the future, the credentials they will require, and how much workers might expect to earn by pursuing them. This appendix contains information for ACF Region 3 (Philadelphia), which includes Delaware, District of Columbia, Maryland, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and West Virginia. (Author abstract modified)
