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:
Educational and health services: 20%
Trade, transportation and utilities: 16%
Professional and business services: 12%
Leisure and hospitality: 8%
Financial activities: 6%
Construction/Natural resources: 4%
