Where are all the jobs?

Recently an out of town buyer asked me what industries were in the Capital Region.  As luck would have it, our local newspaper, THE TIMES UNION, just ran a front page story on where the jobs are. 

Government and educational/health services account for more than two out of five jobs in our market.  The percentages were:

Government:  23%
Educational and health services:  20%
Trade, transportation and utilities:  16%
Professional and business services:  12%
Leisure and hospitality:  8%
Financial activities:  6%
Manufacturing:  5%
Construction/Natural resources:  4%
Other:  4%
Information:  2%
