Interactive Map: Job Growth by Region

Not every region in the state will fare the same in the next decade, according to job projections done for Bridge Magazine. Below are three looks at the forecasts.

In the top graphic, we compare a region’s jobs to its respective population. The bottom bar represents the region’s percentage of the state’s population.

The other two look at the projected growth (on the bottom right) and anticipated wages (on the bottom left). In the case of wages, those are in today’s dollars.

Ignore the selection titled 'All'.
