Connecticut

Connecticut Employment Profile

The Constitution State is unique in that it is both a business epicenter and a well-known vacation destination. It is a New England state, but many also think of it as “a New York suburb” because so many of its residents commute to the Big Apple.

Based on 2013 statistics, the government sector employs the greatest percentage of workers in the state, followed by retail trade, health care and social assistance; professional and technical services; and accommodation and food services, respectively. (Source: Merritt Research Services, LLC)

Insurance has dominated Connecticut’s corporate sector, beginning with its roots in marine insurance almost two centuries ago. According to the state’s website, more than 100 insurance companies of all types are now headquartered in Connecticut. The state enjoys a diverse manufacturing industry, including a strong presence in the production of transportation equipment as well as metalworking, electronics and plastics.
