Key Data on Electricians & Contractors

EleBlog, the electrical industry's 'blog,' offers a roundup of official government data on the nation's electricians and electrical contractors -- free.

The electrical construction industry's Web log - The EleBlog - offers a free, downloadable "special report" filled with U.S. government data on electrical contractors and electricians.

Posted in September, the report provides "official" answers to the following questions:
• How many professional electricians were there in the U.S. in 2004?
• How many will there be in 2014, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics?
• How many newly trained electricians will the nation need in the 10 -year period ending in 2014?
• How many of these electricians work for electrical contractors?
• How many "other" employees work for electrical contractors?
• How many ECs were there in 2003? And 2004?
• How many "nonemployer" ECs were there in 2002, 2003, and 2004?
