Idaho has topped another list of states in the country, though this one might surprise you.  Our growth rate for jobs was four percent, and that gave us top honors in the Nation. 

Experts say that the last two years has shown significant job growth here in Idaho, primarily because are choosing to relocate to our state to take on new employment.

Between January 2016 and January 2017, our state added 27,500 jobs.  Construction was the sector with the largest increase (which makes sense if you’ve seen all the new development going on in Downtown Boise) with 4500 new jobs.  The next closest category was financial industries with 2000 jobs added.

No surprise, the city with the most growth was Boise accounting for over half of the added jobs at 14,400.

For more on the most added job sectors and a more detailed look at the contents of the report, check out coverage the Spokesman-Review.
