Rhode Island Employment Profile

Located in the New England region of the U.S., the Ocean State’s recovery is a work in progress, underperforming the nation in most economic gauges. Today, much of the economy of Rhode Island is based in services, particularly healthcare and education, and still to some extent, manufacturing. Economic strengths include excellent higher education institutions, strong links to Boston, and high per capita income. Challenges are a high tax burden, poor infrastructure, and weak demographic trends. (Source: Moody’s Analytics, Inc.)

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

The largest employers in the state (as of December 2013) include Lifespan, Care New England, CVS Caremark Corp., RBS Citizens Financial Group, Brown University, Fidelity Investments, CharterCare Health Partners, General Dynamics Corp., Naval Undersea Warfare Center, and Bank of America.(Source: Merritt Research Services, LLC)
