Michigan

Michigan Employment Profile

Great Lakes State took one of the hardest hits of any state in the last decade, but is mounting a comeback. Due in part to its lack of economic diversity, after decades of living and dying with the fortunes of the auto industry, Michigan has taken significant steps to change its identity. Finally reaching pre-recession payroll job levels in January of 2015, professional, education, and health services have led the way since 2008. Michigan still has a strong industrial profile, counting construction, mining and logging, and manufacturing among the industries in which it outpaces the national average in job growth.

Based on 2013 statistics, the healthcare and social assistance sector employs the greatest percentage of workers in the state, followed by government; manufacturing; retail trade; and administrative and waste services, respectively. (Source: Merritt Research Services, LLC)
