The government sector accounts for more than 20 percent of jobs in West Virginia, followed by the trade, transportation and utilities and education/health services sectors. Most industries have been reporting job expansion in 2012 with the construction, education/health services, professional/business services, and leisure and hospitality industries showing the strongest percentage job gains.
