Tennessee Employment Analysis

( Data Date : April 2019 )

Tennessee Employment Data

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.
