CareerBuilder And EMSI Release Interactive Map Detailing Growth Of Top Industries In 100 Most Populous U.S. Metros

CHICAGO, Sept. 5, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Which industries are the top drivers of job growth for each of the 100 largest U.S. markets? Which metros have added the most jobs post-recession? Which metros have the biggest concentration of jobs in healthcare, technology, construction, manufacturing, energy and other top fields?  

The U.S. economy is composed of hundreds of industries that are spread across thousands of counties, and the interactions of these industries are huge engines for job formation and economic prosperity. CareerBuilder and Economic Modeling Specialists Intl. (EMSI) have teamed up to create a powerful interactive map, found at http://www.economicmodeling.com/industry-map/, that applies big data to visualize the enormous size, scope and diversity of the U.S. economy. The map uses EMSI's rich labor market database of over 90 national and state employment resources to identify key industries that are driving job growth for the 100 most populous U.S. metros. 1

Viewers can click on each metro and the map reveals 10 of the most important detailed industries for that location, based on number of 2013 jobs, job growth since 2010 and job concentration. From well-known economic forces (e.g., finance in New York City and aerospace products and parts manufacturing in Seattle) to emerging sectors (e.g., motor vehicle body and trailer manufacturing in Nashville and data processing and hosting in San Antonio), the map provides comprehensive – and often surprising - insights.

Viewers can also click on an industry menu to see a list of metros where a specific industry is a major economic driver.

"Since 2010, the national workforce has grown four percent, but more than 40 large metros have eclipsed the national growth rate," said Matt Ferguson, CEO of CareerBuilder. "These are metros with a strong concentration of computer systems design, software publishing and data processing and hosting firms.  These are metros benefitting from the resurgence in U.S. manufacturing, and the nation's need to find new energy sources and expand healthcare services."

In a separate study of the same 100 metros, CareerBuilder and EMSI discovered which metros have added the most jobs per capita post-recession:
