U.S. Auto Industry Employment, available below either as a pdf document or as an Excel spreadsheet, is extracted from tables produced by the U.S. Department of Labor, Bureau of Labor Statistics for its monthly publication, National Employment, Hours, and Earnings Report.   Our table shows average annual total employment, average annual production worker employment, and average hourly production worker earnings (excluding benefits) for Standard Industrial Classification (SIC) numbers 3711, 3713, 3465, 3592, 3694, and 3714.   For comparative purposes, we also include total U.S. non-farm employment, total employment for all U.S. manufacturing industries, and total U.S. durable goods industries employment (SICs 24, 25, and 32-39).

More information is available by transferring to the Bureau of Labor Statistics' web site.   You may initiate your own, no-cost employment data retrieval, by switching directly to the BLS Selective Access web page.

Information on employment prospects for several auto industry careers is available in the Department of Labor's Occupational Outlook Handbook.   If you already have Adobe Acrobat installed on your computer for displaying pdf files, you may open the chapter for the "Vehicle and Equipment Manufacturing Industry," by clicking here.
