Download (pdf)

During the past fifteen years, Rhode Island and its people have experienced significant social and economic change. From Burrillville to Block Island, from Woonsocket to Westerly, recent demographic and employment trends have impacted the lives of all Rhode Islanders. Incorporating information collected by the United States Department of Commerce and the Rhode Island Department of Labor and Training, State of the State depicts demographic changes that occurred during the final decade of the twentieth century and recent employment trends impacting our local economies. 

Population diversity based on age, sex, race, and ethnicity, as well as educational attainment, labor force statistics, and English language proficiency of local residents, is encapsulated in statistical profiles for each of Rhode Island’s thirty-nine communities. An overview of local private sector employment by industry sector is also provided on a city and town basis. 

State of the State shows how Rhode Island continues to evolve through population diversity, educational attainment, and employment trends.
