New Mexico

New Mexico Employment Profile

Located in the Southwest region, the Land of Enchantment is known for abundant natural resources, federal military bases and research centers, and an excellent transportation infrastructure. Historically a ranching and mining state, today new Mexico’s economy is driven by crude oil and natural gas production, federal government spending, and high-tech and commercial space industries. Economic challenges include an over dependence on public sector employment, low per capita income, and some of the poorest rural areas in the U.S. (Source: New Mexico Economic Development Dept.)

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

The largest employers in the state (as of December 2013) include the State of New Mexico (total offices and departments), University of New Mexico (Campuses, Hospital, Medical Group), Albuquerque Public Schools, New Mexico State University, Central New Mexico Community College, Kirtland Air Force Base (DOD, Active Duty, Civil Svc., excludes SNL), Sandia National Laboratories, Los Alamos National Laboratories, Presbyterian Healthcare, and City of Albuquerque. (Source: Merritt Research Services, LLC)
