This 2nd statistical compendium of jobs data was prepared by BW Research Partnership and is based on primary data collected on behalf of the United States Department of Energy (OMB Control No. 1910-5179) and secondary data from the United States Department of Labor’s Quarterly Census of Employment and Wages for Q1 of 2016. From the preface: "The 2017 U.S. Energy and Employment Report (USEER) finds that the Traditional Energy and Energy Efficiency sectors today employ approximately 6.4 million Americans. These sectors increased in 2016 by just under 5 percent, adding over 300,000 net new jobs, roughly 14% of all those created in the country. The 2017 USEER analyzes four sectors of the U.S. economy. The first two of those sectors make up the Traditional Energy sector: •Electric Power Generation and Fuels •Transmission, Distribution and Storage •Energy Efficiency •Motor Vehicles"
