Employment Change

The TYE megazone is unusual in that it experienced net growth in core jobs between 2001 and 2011 - while the GGH as a whole experienced a net loss. During that period, the TYE megazone added 9,625 jobs, of which 7,415 were in "core" employment sectors.

However, as elsewhere in the region, the net growth numbers mask significant change and transition. Manufacturing experienced a net loss of almost 5,000 jobs in the megazone in this period. But this loss was more than offset by an increase of about 9,500 finance and business service jobs, and about 2,600 warehousing and transportation jobs. (See Table 3 in the Appendix.)
