Tennessee

Tennessee Employment Profile

Located in the Southeast region of the U.S., the Volunteer State is known for Nashville’s country-music and the blues and jazz of Memphis, both major tourism destinations. The state’s employment mix is transforming, as manufacturing continues to give way to professional and business services, education and health services, and leisure and hospitality services. Tennessee’s economy benefits from a favorable state and local tax structure and strong investment in auto manufacturing, but is challenged by low educational attainment and worker productivity.

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