South Carolina Employment Analysis

( Data Date : April 2019 )

South Carolina Employment Data

Located in the heart of the fast growing markets of the Southeast region, the Palmetto State’s economy continues transitioning from traditional manufacturing (such as textiles), to an economy built around advanced manufacturing that is thoroughly engaged in the global economy. New plants from Volvo and Boeing are examples of the influx of new capital projects, and construction and distribution is bettered by improvements to the Port of Charleston. Population growth is supported by in-migration of new residents and retirees.
