  • Description

This study takes a closer look at those occupations that do not require a bachelor's degree, asking questions about what kinds of jobs they are and how they compare to jobs that do require at least a bachelor's degree. Specifically,

  • How many job openings are there, and how well do they pay?
  • What kinds of activities do those workers do on the job?
  • What opportunities do they offer to learn on the job?
  • How locally concentrated are those occupations?
This report concludes with recommendations for how the K-12 education system could be improved to increase opportunities in LA's creative occupations, in ways that benefit the LA County economy as a whole.
