The new tool is a Java Servlet powered by a Department of Labor resource through the CareerOneStop website. The screengrab (below) illustrates the tool running in standalone development mode.
The data is presented in percentiles and based on prior year data collection.
Briefly, Wikipedia's definition of Percentile
A percentile (or a centile) is a measure used in statistics indicating the value below which a given percentage of observations in a group of observations fall. For example, the 20th percentile is the value (or score) below which 20% of the observations may be found.
Below, illustration of how the new tool appears on the Employment page.
CareerOneStop and the Department of Labor offer many useful online tools for job hunters and researchers.
