Employment Outlook

Employment of bookkeeping, accounting, and auditing clerks is projected to decline 6% from 2019 to 2029. Technological change and automation are expected to reduce demand for these workers. Despite projected declines in employment, opportunities for these workers should be plentiful due to the need to replace workers who leave this large occupation.
