3 Preface Over the last few years, the Bureau of Labor Market Information (BLMI) has prepared several sets of customized regional publications to help workforce professionals and others gain a better understanding of their local economy and how it has fared compared to other areas. In June 2002, Demographic, Labor Force and Industry Trends were published for Ohio s 12 Economic Development Regions; Market Analysis of Key Workforce Trends was published for all of Ohio s Workforce Investment Areas in This current set of Workforce Analysis publications is an extension of that effort to produce reports for all the One-Stops in WIA 7 and the eighteen other WIAs in the state. This workforce analysis report provides a summary snapshot of the, the One-Stop System for Fairfield, Pickaway and Ross Counties. This presentation also examines some of the key trends compared to state and national trends. The first section begins with a review of the area s basic demographic and economic characteristics. The second section shows trends in important statistics for the area, including population, employment, unemployment rates, income and housing. Employment characteristics by industry receive a detailed examination in the third section. The fourth and final section looks briefly at the area s educational characteristics. A careful review of this information can yield important insights about the local economy. One may assess the health of the local economy by examining key economic trends and comparing them to the state or the nation. Or an examination of industry composition will yield insights into the strengths and weaknesses that local economic development policy might address. Please refer to the Technical Notes and References sections at the end of this publication for reference and documentation of the wide variety of statistical data presented.

4 Highlights Fairfield County appears to be the economically and demographically dominant county in this region. Ross County is defined as economically transitional under the Appalachian Regional Commission. The area has a high level of commuting, primarily from Fairfield and Pickaway Counties to jobs in Franklin County. Both counties are included in the Columbus Metropolitan Statistical Area. Population has grown 11.4 percent between 1995 and Demographically, the counties differ significantly in their age distributions. Employment rolls grew 7.9 percent in the last decade, having recently recovered from the 2001 recession. The unemployment rate began to rise a year before that recession, but otherwise the patterns have been similar to those of the state and nation. Nominal per capita income has grown at an annual compound rate of 3.9 percent in the last ten years. New residential building permits experienced a boom in Fairfield County in Pickaway and Ross Counties remained fairly stable. The most dominant employment sector here is government, especially education at the local level. Government employment is more concentrated here than it is statewide. Local government, accommodation and food services and construction were the three sectors to add the most jobs between 2000 and Federal government workers had the highest average weekly earnings for this area. The highest-paying sector to have added jobs in the last five years was local government. Generally, the region has a somewhat higher overall level of educational attainment than the rest of the state, due in part to the high proportion of educated residents in Fairfield County. iii

5 I. Understanding Local Labor Markets Workforce Analysis Labor economists define a labor market as a geographic area in which both the demand and supply for labor are met primarily within that region. 1 In other words, it is an area where there are jobs and the majority of workers needed for those jobs. An important first step in identifying local labor markets is to examine the commuting patterns of individuals who live or work in the area. These patterns are one of the primary inputs used to define metropolitan and micropolitan areas. 2 Overall, the region is characterized by large-scale out commuting. Each of the counties exhibits a negative flow, with Fairfield County having the most out-commuters. Commuters in both Fairfield and Pickaway Counties travel predominantly to jobs in Franklin County, not surprising considering both are included in the Columbus Metropolitan Statistical Area. Figure 1: Regional Commuting Patterns Fairfield Pickaway Ross In Commuters Total Working in the County 36,957 17,332 28,140 In Commuters 10,214 7,557 6,725 Percent of In Commuters 27.6% 43.6% 23.9% Out Commuters Total Employed Living in the County 60,465 21,921 30,409 Out Commuters 33,722 12,146 8,994 Percent of Out Commuters 55.8% 55.4% 29.6% Net Comparison Statistics Commuting Balance: Net Flow -23,508-4,589-2,269 Percent of Total Commuters -53.5% -23.3% -14.4% Figure 2 on the next page shows a visual summary of the net flow of commuters from the 2000 decennial census. Most workers commuting into a county to work usually do so from adjacent counties. Detailed county-to-county commuting is shown in Appendix C. Ross County was defined as economically transitional by the Appalachian Regional Commission for FY This means it has at least one economic indicator below the national average. 1 Goldstein 2005, p Metropolitan and Micropolitan Statistical Area definitions are excerpted from the Office of Management and Budget s Federal Register Notice (65 FR ). See Appendix B for detailed definitions. 3 Appalachian Regional Commission, August 2006

6 Understanding Local Labor Markets, continued Figure 2: Net Flow of Ohio Commuters *Net flow equals in commuters minus out commuters. A negative number means more people are commuting to work outside the county than are in commuting. For more detailed information, please visit on the web.

7 II. Key Trends Population: The area s population grew 11.4 percent between 1995 and 2005, driven largely by growth in Fairfield County (21.0%). For comparison, Ohio s population grew only 2.3 percent during this period. The remaining two counties in this region grew only modestly, with Pickaway County s population increasing 1.4 percent and Ross County growing 3.5 percent.

Fairfield and Pickaway Counties have similar median ages as Ohio s Fairfield County has the largest proportion of children under 18 (26.3%) while Pickaway County has the largest proportion of working adults between 18 and 64 (66.3%). Ross County has the oldest profile of the three, with the highest median age and proportion of people 65 and older (11.9%).

8 Key Trends, continued Employment: Total nonfarm employment in the region has just recently recovered from the 2001 recession with total growth of 7.9 percent in the last decade. Much of this trend was again led by Fairfield County, which added about 6,500 jobs during this period (21.2%). Ross County employment rolls grew 4.9 percent. Pickaway County was the only county in this area to lose jobs since 1995 about 12.5 percent. Figure 5: Employment Trends 90,000 Fairfield Pickaway Ross 80,000 70,000 60,000 50,000 40,000 30,000 20,000 10, ,880 74,300 74,431 76,157 77,680 78,747 77,195 76,385 77,233 78,510 78,618 Fairfield 30,907 31,894 32,227 33,171 34,345 34,631 34,280 34,386 35,678 36,858 37,453 Pickaway 16,436 16,361 16,107 16,375 16,431 16,754 16,192 15,013 14,882 14,533 14,378 Ross 25,537 26,045 26,097 26,611 26,904 27,362 26,723 26,986 26,673 27,119 26,787 While a few sectors employment growth figures could not be published here due to confidentiality restrictions, several major industries reported job growth between 2000 and 2005, notably education and health services; leisure and hospitality; professional and business services; and financial activities. and trade, transportation and utilities recorded drops in employment during this period.

9 Key Trends, continued Unemployment: This region largely followed the same patterns in unemployment as the rest of the state and nation, but with rates in the area beginning to rise in 2000, a year before the 2001 recession. Fairfield County generally had the lowest rates in the last ten years, even lower than national rate until 2005, while Ross County had the highest rates.

10 Key Trends, continued Income: Per capita income has been rising steadily over the past ten years, showing a 3.9 percent annual compound rate of growth higher than Ohio s growth rate of 3.7 percent, but lower than the national 4.1 percent growth. Fairfield County has had the highest income of the area, nearly $30,400 per capita by Pickaway and Ross Counties had similar income levels and rates of growth during this period, but were below $25,000 per capita in Figure 8: Per Capita Income $35,000 U.S. Ohio Fairfield Pickaway Ross $30,000 $25,000 $20,000 $15,000 $10,000 $5,000 $ U.S. $23,076 $24,175 $25,334 $26,883 $27,939 $29,845 $30,574 $30,810 $31,484 $33,050 Ohio $22,495 $23,322 $24,656 $26,017 $26,859 $28,207 $28,601 $29,212 $29,954 $31,161 $19,634 $20,393 $21,826 $22,968 $23,657 $25,031 $25,500 $26,074 $26,574 $27,602 Fairfield $22,163 $22,942 $24,464 $25,951 $26,605 $28,088 $28,626 $28,946 $29,393 $30,383 Pickaway $17,400 $17,780 $19,481 $19,939 $20,406 $21,802 $22,456 $22,998 $23,580 $24,842 Ross $17,258 $18,224 $19,292 $20,333 $21,103 $22,219 $22,315 $23,213 $23,648 $24,470 6

11 Key Trends, continued Housing Permits: New permits for residential construction are shown in Figure 9 below. The number of permits peaked in 2003, due largely to a building boom in Fairfield County. New permits in Pickaway and Ross Counties have stayed fairly stable in the last ten years. Average valuation for new residential permits, shown in Figure 10, show steady increases in Fairfield and Pickaway Counties. The spike in average valuation for Ross County in 2002 occurred because all the permits reported in that year were single-family units.

12 III. Industry Analysis Employment by Sector: Figure 11 below shows the distribution of industry employment in These statistics generally do not include farmers, self-employed workers, and others not covered by unemployment insurance. This pie chart shows a very diverse mix of employment in the. The largest single employer, accounting for nearly one out of every four workers in the area, is government, including public schools. There are six postsecondary schools in the region (see page 12). Other significant categories represented in this chart are trade, transportation and utilities, which includes retail and trucking services (17.3%); manufacturing (15.0%); education and health services, including hospitals, clinics and private schools (12.2%); leisure and hospitality, which includes restaurants, hotels and certain recreation facilities (10.9%); professional and business services such as law and accounting firms, corporate offices and administrative support (8.1%); construction (5.1%); financial activities like banking, insurance and real estate (3.3%); other defined service industries such as laundries, repair services and certain non-profit organizations (2.8%); information, which includes publishing and telecommunications (1.2%); and finally a small number of workers in natural resources and mining (0.4%). Figure 11: Employment by Major Sector, 2005 Government 23.8% Natural Resources and Mining 0.4% Construction 5.1% 15.0% Other Services 2.8% Leisure and Hospitality 10.9% Trade, Transportation and Utilities 17.3% Education and Health Services 12.2% Information 1.2% Financial Activities 3.3% Professional and Business Services 8.1% Figure 12 on the following page shows more detailed information about sector employment in the region and how it compares with the state. In addition to the area s industry mix relative to the state, the proportion of total state employment for each sector helps identify the importance of a sector s employment in Ohio. The biggest example for this region is state 8

13 Industry Analysis, continued government; across Ohio, state workers account for only 2.5 percent of employees, but here they account for 5.1 percent of workers. Local government employment especially is quite prevalent here. Appendix D suggests this may be due to public education in the area. Two other such concentrated industries are accommodation and food services, which employs 9.8 percent here compared to 8.1 percent statewide, and construction, which employs 5.1 percent here compared to 4.4 percent statewide. There are also a few industries that are less concentrated in the Jobs One-Stop than they are in Ohio, such as finance and insurance and administrative and waste services.

14 Industry Analysis, continued Employment Prospects: The table below looks at industry classifications and is color coded to more quickly identify those sectors most important to the region. The left column ranks nineteen sectors shown by their employment levels in The top eight sectors in this column are printed in blue. The right column ranks sectors by the net number of new jobs created since The growth sectors in the second column are printed in red. Sectors that appear at the top of both lists are printed in purple. Sectors for which we could not establish a growth rate due to confidentiality restrictions are printed in italics. Sectors with high employment levels are often a major source of job openings because seven of ten openings are expected to be replacement needs. 4 At the top of both lists is local government, which has added nearly 1,800 jobs in the last five years. Increases in local government staffing can often accompany broader community growth as citizens demand more public services, especially education. is another large employer, although it also reported the most jobs lost in the period of analysis. Retail trade and state government were other large sectors that also lost jobs. The remaining large employers that did add jobs were accommodation and food services; administrative and waste management; and construction. Aside from the large employers, four more sectors added jobs between 2000 and 2005: finance and insurance; arts, entertainment and recreation; natural resources and mining; and real estate and rental and leasing. There were seven sectors for which growth rates could not be published due to confidentiality restrictions. One of these, health care and social assistance, most likely had significant growth given the increased demand due to the aging of the baby boom generation and the emergence of new medical technologies.

15 Industry Analysis, continued Average Weekly Earnings: Figure 14 below ranks the sectors in the region by their average weekly earnings total wage or salary regardless of hours worked and shows how much the sectors have grown or declined by Statewide average weekly earnings for all employers were $718 in 2005, compared to $607 for this region. This table also uses the same color-coding system as Figure 13 on the previous page, with sectors printed in purple being large sectors with growth. The highest-earning sector in this region was federal government, where the average worker earned over $1,100 per week. The second highest was manufacturing, with average earnings of about $900 per week. The remaining sectors earning more than the statewide average were management of companies and enterprises (this mostly includes corporate headquarters) at $876, state government at $823, and wholesale trade at $785. The highest-paying industry to have added jobs in the last five years was local government, where the average worker earned $649 per week. Bear in mind that industry size and growth do not always coincide with earnings potential. Many such industries tend to hire large numbers of part-time workers who may not earn as much per week, as well as earn part of their income in tips, which is not included in these wage figures. For example, accommodation and food services added about 800 workers in this area, yet this industry had the lowest average weekly earnings: $205 per week.

16 IV. Educational Infrastructure Figure 15 below shows educational attainment for persons 25 and older in the area, according to data from the 2000 decennial census. Generally, the has a similar overall level of educational attainment as the state, with slightly higher proportions of adults without high school diplomas and adults with at least some college education. Fairfield County has the highest educational attainment, with nearly 22 percent of adults holding a bachelor s degree and ten percent holding a master s degree or better. Fairfield also has the lowest proportion of adults holding only a high school degree. Pickaway and Ross Counties have nearly identical educational profiles skewed toward less educational attainment.

In addition, the area is host to 251 apprentices in 12 programs, covering such fields like electrical work; plumbing; masonry; carpentry; painting; roofing; sheet metal work; and heating, ventilation and air conditioning. 5 5 Many of the apprentices in Pickaway County are in vocational programs within the Orient Correctional Institute. 12

17 Technical Notes Commuting data are from the 2000 Census of Population and Housing, County-to-County Worker Flow Files. Data is available at Population and demographic estimates were obtained from the U.S. Census Bureau. The figures are available online at Employment data were obtained from the Quarterly Census of Employment and Wages (QCEW), Bureau of Labor Market Information, Ohio Department of Job and Family Services. The data are based on reports filed by employers subject to the Ohio Unemployment Compensation Law, as well as those covered under Unemployment Compensation for Federal Employees, by place of work. See the NAICS-based Economic Development Profiles at or the data query menu for Employment and Wages by Industry at Because data for some industry sectors in some counties have not been released due to confidentiality restrictions, we were not able to report data for these sectors in the region.
