Manufacturing in Ohio
The concentration of U.S. employment has been shifting from the goods-producing sector to the service sector (see Economic Trends, September 2000). How is this shift reflected in the Fourth District’s labor market, especially in Ohio? Fourth District states, with the exception of West Virginia, are more reliant on manufacturing for employment and earnings than the nation as a whole. For the District, Ohio has the highest share of manufacturing employment (16.7%) and earnings (25.2%).
