New ODJFS Publications Outline Potential for Job Growth in Stark County and the State

Following the U.S. Bureau of LOhio Job Outlook Publicationsabor Statistics announcement that Ohio led the nation in job growth in April, a new document issued by the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services (ODJFS) takes on special significance for the state and Stark County's emerging focus on fuel cells and high tech industries.

A Statistical Dilemma: New and Emerging Occupations[1]notes the difficulty in "fully defin(ing) the characteristics of these occupations, much less their potential growth, their prominence in industries, and whether they will be part of the next economic expansion or remain on the periphery of the economy."

ODJFS states that occupations of this nature are seldom captured in surveys until they become commonplace. Another publication looking at standard occupations, 2016 Job Outlook Canton-Massillon Metropolitan Statistical Area[2], is one of eight covering the state's eight largest MSAs.

Service providing industries, including wholesale and retail trades, will see the greatest change in conventional employment in the Canton-Massillon area, adding 7,800 positions. Health care will follow with an increase of 4,200 jobs.

However, for  Stark County and the rest of the state, the issue of new and emerging occupations still remains a critical one. As ODJFS notes, "The(se) occupations may represent the beginnings of technological and industry breakthroughs and be the keys to competitive advantage for new industries or product developments."
