Let’s take a look at the breakdown of what sectors are adding jobs locally and what sectors are losing jobs. I had intended to post this yesterday but the day got away from me. Sorry about that!
First up, year-over-year job growth, broken down into a few relevant sectors over the past four years.
Now here’s a zoomed in view so you can see what’s going on lately:
With 4.7% year-over-year growth, the retail sector was once again the fastest-growing sector in November. Overall year-over-year growth fell from 2.7% in October to 2.2% in November. Job growth peaked this year at 3.6% in July.
