Pierce County gets lumped into the greater Seattle metropolitan area for statistics on everything from sports to median income. But we differ considerably from our neighbors to the north. That’s why it is important to drill down into statistics like the job index and economic numbers to draw out the most relevant information.
With the right information, decisions about policy and programs can be more targeted and ultimately more effective. That’s why WorkForce Central is fighting this shortage of Pierce-specific data by producing employment reports like the one found here.
In 2016, we also dug deep into the top local industries to study workforce supply and demand. Armed with the most relevant data ever, we’re helping the community make better, more informed choices about growth and investment. Read more about the 2016 data here.
