employment is expected to increase by more than 52,000 jobs during
the 2010-2020 projection periods as
the state’s economy recovers from recessionary losses.
Employment in 2020 is projected to reach 540,550 an increase
of 52,372 (10.7%) from the 2010 employment level and an increase
of 17,639 (3.4%) from 2006, the year prior
to start of the recession in Rhode Island. Much of this growth
is attributed to the increased demand for the products
and services provided by the Health Care & Social
Assistance; Accommodation & Food Services; Retail Trade;
Professional, Scientific & Technical Services; and
Educational Services sectors.
