WORKFORCE PROFILE :: EDUCATION & SKILLS GAP

In general, education and skill requirements in a region should reflect the national trend. Following this rationale, any education and job skills gap in the Tri-State Region can be identified by comparing the region to the nation. The U.S. Department of Labor classifies education and job skill requirements into five major job zones and four different educational levels. The charts below compare the percentages of total jobs in the region and nation - for both regionally bounded and regionally unbounded sectors - that fall in each job zone and educational level. Overall, compared to the nation, the Tri-State Region has fewer jobs with higher education and professional job skill requirements.
