Difficulty in Making Accurate Demand Projections
 “In general, the ability to forecast 10 years out the types of jobs that will be available
   in the future is limited, with projections accurate only about one-third of the time.
   There may also be a lack of awareness or limited use of these projections by
   postsecondary education institutions and students.    ”
