Top states for job growth are ranked

February 07 2013

The top states for employment growth are ranked in a new report by Staffing Industry Analysts. Utah ranked as the top state for percentage job growth while North Carolina ranked as the top state for volume job growth.

“States are ranked by percentage growth score, and volume growth score,” said Theo Vadpey, author of the report.

“Percentage growth score is based on average percent employment growth over the past twelve, six, and three months, taking acceleration or deceleration into account,” Vadpey said. “Volume growth score is based on average volume of employment growth over the same period. States with smaller populations are more likely to have higher percentage growth scores, while states with larger populations are more likely to have higher volume growth scores.”

The top five states for growth in terms of percent of jobs added are:

  1. Utah
  2. Nevada
  3. North Carolina
  4. South Carolina
  5. Georgia

The top states for employment growth in terms of volume of jobs included:

  1. North Carolina
  2. Florida
  3. Texas
  4. Georgia
  5. Tennessee
