Note: See here for our in-depth post on this subject.
In this interactive graphic, you can explore EMSI’s data on manufacturing jobs and exports. The data is based on 4-digit NAICS manufacturing sectors. NOTE: 6-digit data was used in the previous post.
Click on the chart to highlight an industry or use the drop-down box. Data in the top half of the graphic shows percentage change in jobs (on the y-axis) and exports (on the x-axis). The bottom line graph simply compares manufacturing jobs and exports over time.
As we highlighted in our main post, 71% of all manufacturing sectors increased their exports while decreasing their domestic workforce from 2002 to 2010.
