This is not a large occupation in Nova Scotia so job opportunities may not be that frequent. With a large percent of workers being 55 years of age and older, retirements are expected to be a key contributor to employment opportunities over the coming years. Other Social Science Professionals most commonly work full-time hours. Also, a fair portion of the workforce is self-employed, so having the option to "work for yourself" may appeal to some individuals’ interests/motivations.

The median employment income for 56% of Other Social Science Professionals who worked full-time, year-round in 2015 was $55,588. Across all occupations in Nova Scotia, 59% of those who worked full-time year round had a median employment income of $43,600.
