Help Support the Economics Labor Market with Quality Data: The O*NET Data Collection Program and AAEA members

The O*NET Data Collection Program, which is sponsored by the U.S. Department of Labor, is seeking the input of expert Economists on our own job market characteristics. As the nation's most comprehensive source of occupational data, O*NET is a public resource for millions of job seekers, employers, veterans, educators, and students at www.onetonline.org.

The Agricultural & Applied Economics Association encourages you to volunteer to complete and return the O*NET questionnaires.   Please be assured that your decision regarding participation in O*NET will not impact your standing with our organization and is completely voluntary… The AAEA leadership encourages you to participate so that there is accurate and rich information available about our sector
