All sectors should enjoy sizable advances. However, because of the steep job decline in construction, the projected job growth still will fall short of the industry’s pre-recession employment level. Financial activities will be up by 12.5 percent with the addition of 340 positions. While the real estate and rental and leasing sector will rise by 15.6 percent, the finance and insurance sector is anticipating a modest increase of 7.7 percent. Forecasted growth of 15.5 percent for the natural resources and mining sector will push the rate of expansion above the county’s rate during the projected period. This industry will benefit from job gains in agriculture, forestry, fishing and hunting, particularly jobs related to crop production and support activities for agriculture and forestry. A projected increase of 290 jobs will drive the other services industry division upward by 15.8 percent. Advances in religious, grantmaking, civic, professional and similar organizations will account for about 45 percent of the job opportunities created within this industry. Manufacturing is predicted to edge upward by 11.7 percent throughout the 10-year period, which equates to a minimal gain of 140 new jobs. Durable goods manufacturing will be the primary source for the positions added. The information industry, with approximately 1 percent of the workforce, will be the lone industry that will suffer a 7.5 percent job loss. Slowdowns affecting the motion picture and sound recording industries will account for the contraction in jobs.
