Brad,

The Occupational Outlook Handbook is a reference book or source. So you need to cite it as such. 

If you obtained this source from one of our research databses, please go to the Purdue OWL APA citation style guide for electronic resources https://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/560/10/ and scroll down till you get to Encyclopedias and Dictionaries (this also applies to other reference sources such as Handbooks). Cite your source following that same format.

If you obtained this source from the government website, cite it as:

U.S. Department of Labor, Bureau of Labor Statistics. (2014). Article title.

Occupational outlook handbook, 2014-15. Retrieved from

the URL address.
