Federal Government Employment

The Federal Government, excluding the Postal Service employed about 1.8 million civilian workers. The Federal Government is the Nation’s single largest employer. Because data on employment in certain agencies cannot be released to the public for national security reasons, this total does not include employment for the Central Intelligence Agency, National Security Agency, Defense Intelligence Agency, and National Imagery and Mapping Agency. Federal Government Employment

Employment in some occupations is projected to increase, despite an expected decline in federal employment overall. As the chart shows, federal employment in occupations that focus on IT or math is projected to grow faster than the 8-percent average for occupations across all industries from 2020 to 2030. And each of these occupations had a median annual wage greater than the $71,120 median annual wage for all workers in the federal government in 2021.

Employment is projected to increase by 11.9 million jobs from 2020 to 2030. Employment is projected to grow from 153.5 million to 165.4 million jobs from 2020 to 2030. Pandemic recovery and growth in healthcare-related occupations are expected to account for a large share of projected job growth. The Occupational Outlook Handbook (OOH) reflects the 2020-30 projections.
