District of Columbia Employment Profile

The United States Capital is a semi-autonomous Federal city, which has unique challenges and advantages that come with its governmental structure. It has a higher per capita income than any state, but that prosperity has not found its way to the city’s poor neighborhoods. The Federal Government is the largest employer in the District, but public sector layoffs and slow growth in professional services have harmed D.C.’s recovery from the Great Recession.

In D.C., the five fastest growing occupations are audio/video equipment technicians, logisticians, construction managers, customer service representatives, and cooks. The slowest growing/declining occupations are computer and information systems managers, receptionists and information clerks, executive secretaries/administrative assistants, legal secretaries, and purchasing managers.
