Summary of Findings

The annual report entitled, "Rhode Island Employment and Wage Analysis," highlights Rhode Island’s employment and wage data in 2007 and provides a comparison to annual employment and wage data from 2006. Key findings for 2007 include:

A meager 22 private sector jobs were added in Rhode Island between 2006 and 2007.

The 2007 average annual wage in the private sector increased by $1,095 from 2006.

The Health Care & Social Assistance sector employed over 18 percent of the state’s private sector workforce and added nearly 1,600 jobs from 2006.

Nine industry sectors experienced employment losses between 2006 and 2007.

Annual wage growth was reported in 14 of the 19 private industry sectors, with the annual wage in the Management of Companies & Enterprises sector increasing by over $5,600.

Management of Companies & Enterprises was the highest paying sector, with workers averaging over $96,000 in 2007.


Quarterly bonuses and exercised stock options are included in the calculation and therefore may impact the average annual wage.
