Alabama Employment Profile

Located in the southeastern region of the U.S., Alabama has experienced many shifts – social, agricultural and economic – over the past century. Its economy, once heavily reliant on agriculture, industry and mining, is now much more diverse, having expanded into finance and banking; auto manufacturing; aerospace; and electronics.

Based on 2013 statistics, the government sector employs the greatest percentage of workers in the state, followed by retail trade; manufacturing; health care and social assistance; and accommodation and food services, respectively.

The largest employers in the state include Wal-Mart, the U.S. Army, Regions Bank, University of Alabama-Birmingham, the U.S. Postal Service, Mobile Education Board, Alabama Power Company, Publix Alabama, Huntsville Hospital and Ascension Health Ministry Service.
