1 Metro Economic Outlook: Seattle A successful technology industry has brought prosperity to much of the Seattle region, but local officials are trying to branch out in order to further diversify the economy. The tech boom is the driver of our growth, but we re also working very intentionally on strengthening and growing the aerospace and maritime and logistics industries, said Suzanne Estey, president and CEO of the Economic Development Council of Seattle and King County, a public/private partnership that promotes business growth. Those are critical areas for middle income jobs. We still have an undercurrent of inequality and a shrinking middle class, much like you re seeing across the country right now. Unemployment rate Source: Bureau of Labor Statistics (April 2016) SEATTLE METRO: : VITAL STATS Total working age population: 2,326,415 out of a total population of 3,671,478 Number of households: 1,406,259 Consumer price index: (goods and services that cost $100 in cost $ in April 2016) Percentage of local residents with bachelor s degrees: 24.9 With graduate or professional degrees: 14.5 Workers in STEM industries: 51.5 per 1,000 residents Sources: Census Bureau (2014), Bureau of Labor Statistics (April 2016), American Institute for Economic Research (2015) The Seattle metro area spans three counties in northwestern Washington. In Seattle s home of King County alone, there are nearly 500 companies and more than 45,000 employees in the aerospace sector. Boeing, the largest such employer, has seen heightened global demand for its 737 MAX airplane, and the company is on pace to construct 52 planes per month at its local plant in Renton by Boeing s employment ebbs and flows, but we re still quite bullish on the strength of the aerospace sector, Estey said. Aside from Redmond-based Microsoft, some of the region s other notable Fortune 500 interests include retailers Amazon.com, Nordstrom and Starbucks, all three of which are headquartered in Seattle. Amazon in particular is in high growth mode. The company had about 500,000 square feet of office Unemployment and most CPI data updated monthly. Other data updated once annually as it becomes available.

2 space in the region in 2010, but expects to have nearly 10 million square feet of space by Educational and medical centers provide one out of every six jobs in the City of Seattle, according to a report by the city s downtown business association. Those institutions provide nearly $5 billion annually in salaries and benefits to the city s labor force. Construction Mining and logging Manufacturing Trade, transportation and utilities Information Financial activities Professional and business services Education and health services Leisure and hospitality Other services Government Total nonfarm Source: Bureau of Labor Statistics (January 2016) Despite the recent success which included a jobless rate below 5 percent in late 2015 Estey said there are continued efforts to shore up the skills of the region s workers. Air Washington, a program that involved 11 community colleges several of which are located in the Seattle region was supported by a $20 million federal grant and was completed in It provided 246,526, 11% 209,661, 9% Working age categories 246,333, 11% 587,091, 25% Labor force makeup ,000 1,500 2,000 Number in thousands training for more than 2,600 workers in advanced manufacturing, composites, electronics and avionics, aircraft assembly, and aircraft maintenance. With the help of $40 million in support from Microsoft, the University of Washington also announced a partnership in 2015 with Tsinghua University in China. Dubbed the Global Innovation Exchange and based in Seattle, an institute will open in the fall of 2016 and will allow students, faculty and professionals to collaborate on technology projects. In 2017, the institute will launch a master s degree 20 to 24 program in technology innovation, 25 to 34 and will add more programs in 35 to 44 subsequent years. 515,285, 22% 521,519, 22% 45 to to to 64 Despite these great things that are happening, many of our tech companies are having to import talent from all over the world, Estey said. We need to do more. We re still not meeting the demand. Source: Census Bureau (2014) 2
