Default Occupations and specialists - numbers in T2K

Hi all,

Working on some ideas, I downloaded the US Bureau of Labor Statistics file of 1997 employment estimates. This lists around 500 occupation groups, and the estimated numbers in each. I thought this might be useful for looking in a town or city to try and find those specialists you are trying to find...

E.g., you are looking for someone who is a proper (pre-war) dentist - this file would say that 7 in 10,000 people would be a dentist, so there should be a few around in somewhere like Krakow. Of course, they may not be practicing as a dentist now...

I also thought this might provoke some discussion about occupations that are still in demand, and those that essentially become extinct. (This will depend on the image of destruction you have for your T2K world, as well as the organization of areas within that world.) Thoughts?
