File Size:2MB


During the past three years, Iowa has managed to regain a large number of the jobs that were lost due to the severe recession of 2007-2009. Many of these jobs were classified as “middle-skill” jobs, and a disproportionate number of them were concentrated in the construction and manufacturing industries. Middle-skill jobs currently represent about 56 percent of the jobs that make up Iowa’s economy. They are generally defined as those that require education and training beyond high school, but less than a bachelor’s degree. These jobs can be found in all of the state’s industries.
