Geoscience employment by state
AGI's released another fascinating fact sheet on the geoscience profession, showing employment by state.
Arizona falls in the middle range by having 2% of the total workforce in science and engineering. The leading states are in the 3% range.
The big variations are in the states with the highest geoscience employment as a percentage of total S&E employment.
The top state is Wyoming with 41% - all those geologists in the oil and mining industries no doubt.
Most of the top states are Western energy-mining centers but New York is at the 3rd spot with 29%. Can anyone explain that one?
Arizona falls in one of the lower ranks with 6-10% of S&E jobs in the geosciences.
