Latest State Wide Employment Data

Below is the table of data from the Washington Employment Security Department current through February 2011. WESD will release local area reports, including Spokane MSA, on March 24th. If I had time, I would try to convert this in to some sort of visual representation but alas, I do not have the time this week.

A summary of the statewide report is here.

In the table that follows, original report formatting is lost and this may lead to reader confusion. For example, “Manufacturing” is a summary of the next several sub sectors in manufacturing, shown below the row containing “Manufacturing”. Also, this chart shows all sectors tallied for the state. When we get to Spokane, there are significantly fewer sectors than those shown here.

So that this web site is easier to read, the data table appears after the break  – click on the Read more link to continue.
