Key Findings:
This report summarizes regional, statewide, and national labor market data. It addresses the following questions:

  1. What are the current employment levels across major industry groups? How do they compare at each level of aggregation?
  2. Which industries are projected to exhibit the greatest job growth in the near future?
  3. Which CTE career clusters have programs that align with the most high-growth, high-wage occupations?
KRESA Superintendent David Campbell approached YPL to ask for assistance identifying CTE programs the center should offer. Specifically, Superintendent Campbell is focused on implementing programs that will prepare students to enter high-wage occupations with strong projected job growth in Southwest Michigan. ” Page 2
