Anthony P. Carnevale and Nicole Smith
Twelve million Americans are unable to find work and 40 percent of that number has been unemployed for six months or more. Authors, however, estimate the number of job vacancies in this country to be at 3 million per month. In addition, Dr. Carnevale engages in a Q&A and answers “Why are middle-skill jobs so important to growing the U.S. economy?”

Career and Technical Education: Five Ways That Pay Along the Way to the B.A.
This report details the 29 million "middle jobs"—jobs that pay middle class wages for workers without a four-year degree and the five major pathways that lead to those jobs.
The College Advantage
How American workers fared in the Great Recession and recovery by education, sex, industry, and occupation

A postsecondary education is the best path to the middle class, but others exist. We examine which career clusters offer the most promising opportunity for job seekers of varying education levels.
Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics workers are the source of growth and innovation, but meeting the economy's demand for these critical skills will be challenging.
The Midwest Challenge
This report finds that the twelve Midwestern states are no longer dependent on manufacturing. New jobs in the region will be in high-skill service industries such as education and healthcare.

The Undereducated American
The United States has been underproducing college-educated workers for 30 years, and is paying for it with increased income inequality.
