    District of Columbia Employment Data

    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.
