Stephen Rose provides the basic numbers:

According to the Center on Education and the Workforce’s Help Wanted report, the fastest-growing job clusters are those found in the occupations that demand the highest levels of education: managerial and professional, education, health care professional and technical, and science, technical, engineering, and mathematics (STEM), and community service and arts occupations.

Together, these career paths will account for 31 percent of jobs in 2018. In the economy as a whole, 63 percent of all jobs will require some form of post-secondary education.
