Atlanta, GA Employment Information

Atlanta Employment Overview

The Atlanta metropolitan area has seen steady but lackluster job growth over the last year. In most of the super sectors of industry, the city has grown about 8,000 or more jobs per sector in the last year. In 2014, Atlanta was considered one of the 12 largest statistical areas in the nation for employment purposes. Although it was not one of the cities that exceeded the national job growth rate, it did not lose any jobs either. The housing market is beginning to grow again in this city, and new constructions jobs have begun to appear faster than the national average.

Atlanta Job Market

Trade, utilities and transportation jobs are leading the way in Atlanta. Professional and business services are also growing with an additional 8,200 jobs over the past year. The number of jobs added is along the same growth level seen in the national averages. More than 8,000 leisure and hospitality jobs have been added for over the last year as tourism has begun to return to the city. The government sector in the city actually saw a decline in employment over the last 12 months.

Atlanta Employment Trends

In 2008, Atlanta was hit hard by the Great Recession with jobs lost in all areas of industry. As the nation’s economy has improved, so has the economy in Atlanta with many job gains in transportation and business services while state and local government jobs have begun to decline. Construction and infrastructure projects have returned to the local area as the housing market has begun to improve and rebound from the 2008 lows. The current unemployment rate in Atlanta is 7.3 percent, which is higher than the national average of 6.2 percent.

The overall cost of living in the Atlanta area is just slightly lower than the national average but higher than the average cost of living in the state. Housing in Atlanta is a little over 10-percent lower than the national average. Groceries, transportation and services are marginally higher than in the rest of the nation. Utilities cost residents a little less than the rest of the country.
