    Vermont Employment Analysis

    ( Data Date : August 2017 )

    Vermont Employment Data

    Located in the New England region of the U.S., the Green Mountain State is known for dairy, mined stone (granite, marble, and slate) and maple syrup. Economic advantages include a well-educated work force, high social capital, and solid tourism. Primary challenges are Vermont’s remote and northern location, slow population growth and an aging labor force, and relative lack of available investment capital. The near term pace of its economy is expected to be moderate, with a continuation of very tight labor market conditions.
