As the 7th most populous state in the U.S., and with a location that links the Northeast of the country to the Midwest, the Buckeye State offers unique economic opportunities. Ohio is within a one-day drive of 50 percent of the U.S. population and 70 percent of the country's manufacturing capacity.
Jobs and the Ohio economy
Ohio's location makes it a mecca for manufacturing jobs, which generally do not require a postsecondary education. Some of the state's largest employers include Kroger, Goodyear, and Proctor & Gamble. However, these jobs are experiencing dramatic cutbacks, and the state government's "Ohio Job Outlook" report predicts that manufacturing jobs will decrease by 14.9 percent from 2008 to 2018.
By contrast, jobs in the health care field have grown rapidly in the recent past and that trend should continue. Thanks to some mergers and acquisitions, Ohio now possesses several large hospital groups that rank among the state's major employers, including the Cleveland Clinic and Catholic Healthcare Partners.
Also ranked among the fastest growing industries are employment services, computer systems design and related services, and individual and family services (in the social assistance category). The state of Ohio expects each of these industries to generate approximately 20,000 to 25,000 new jobs from 2008 to 2018.
