Historic Jobs Factoid II

This is just a corollary to last week's post on the latest employment data for the region. Not only was the latest data on the number of manufacturing jobs in the region a bit historic, here is a series of the year over year change in combined Education and Health Services Jobs in the Pittsburgh MSA.  The latest data is the largest such jump in the data going back to 1990.  I am just realizing another factoid of note...  this series has almost never gone negative.  There is one period, September 1994 to September 1995 when there was a small (-200) drop, but other than that this series has been positive every month. Again, the year just recorded is the single biggest jump looking back.

You can see the relative slowdown during the Great Recession, but it was still a great component to have in that period.

Care to do Business and Professional Services? That's been another big part of the story recently, but has perhaps gotten less attention than it really deserves.
