SACRAMENTO, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
Today the California Business Roundtable announced the launch of the California Center for Jobs and the Economy. The Center will provide a comprehensive view of California’s employment picture by region as well by demographics and industry sectors. The website provides a new data tool that allows users to visually see what is occurring in the state with respect to employment, wages, and other economic data across the regions, by county and by State Senate and Assembly districts.
“California businesses, residents and elected officials are going to greatly benefit from the creation of the Center for Jobs and the Economy. The factual data that the Center distributes is going to give California the opportunity to assess a variety of aspects of the jobs environment and the economy, ultimately allowing for further understanding of California’s business climate,” stated Tom Conley, Chairman of the California Business Roundtable.
Building off the work of regional economic development groups, the Center for Jobs and the Economy was formed to provide an objective and nonpartisan source of information about the jobs environment and economic trends in California, as well as providing information to understand current policy decisions and their impacts on job creation. The data is organized by statewide, GoBiz regions, county level and senate and assembly districts. The Center has the capability of providing comprehensive data in one place including unemployment rates, county demographics, industry specific information, job growth statistics and types of jobs gained and lost.
