2010 Unemployment Figures By Specific Occupation

A while ago I wrote about Unemployment Figures by Occupation but that data was for broader occupational groups.

The Wall Street Journal has a page with a search function so that you can find the unemployment rate per specific occupation.   The data they used is from the BLS and tracks 500 individual occupations.

The data on the WSJ page is from 2010 so its not very current.  Still it could be interesting or even useful for you to know what unemployment looked like in a specific occupation.   

I've looked all over the BLS site and for the life of me I can't find where the unemployment rates for specific occupations might be find.  It has to be there, but I just can't find it.   There is a LOT of data on the BLS site and its easy to get lost over there.
