Arizona - Comparative Trends Analysis of Total Employment, 1969-2022

Introduction & Summary

Generate graphic analysis and summary reports of local area growth and change. Compare trends focusing on total employment. Employment numbers remain the most popular and frequently cited statistics used for tracking local area economic conditions and trends. The Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA) employment estimates reported measure the number of full- and part-time wage and salary employees, plus the number of proprietors of unincorporated businesses. People holding more than one job are counted in the employment estimates for each job they hold. This means BEA employment estimates represent a job count, not a people count. Also, BEA employment is by place-of-work, rather than by place-of-residence.
