Visualizing Jobs Growth by Industry in the United States

by Cassidy Chansirik
Charts of jobs growth and jobs decline in various industries like motion pictures and educational services.

Bloomberg has created a series of interactive visualizations that show the number of jobs in different industries from 2006 to present-day. One visualization compares industries with the highest and lowest rates of employment growth in the past month. For example in the past month, the motion picture and sound recording industry gained 23,200 jobs compared to local government education, which lost 231,100 jobs. Another visualization charts how shifts in jobs growth in particular industries coincide with changes in average hourly pay. For instance, jobs in the clothing and clothing accessories industry gained 350,500 jobs between May and August of this year and wages decreased from $17.72 an hour in May to $17.10 an hour in August.
