Madison, WI Employment Information

Madison Employment Overview

Ranked 45th in terms of metropolitan areas with the lowest unemployment, Madison, Wisconsin, has a relatively vibrant local economy with an unemployment rate hovering near 4 percent as of May 2014. This means that economic recovery is well underway in Madison when compared to other cities nationwide. As of June 2014, the unemployment rates has been on a steady decline for two years, outperforming other urban centers in a state where unemployment remains as high as 7 percent.

Madison Job Market

The top industries in Madison include governmental, educational, health services, manufacturing and information technology. Construction is also experiencing growth, especially in skilled construction trades. Among the fastest growing sectors are health, biotechnology, and advertising, with growth in government positions beginning to stagnate somewhat, although the local, state and federal governments continue to be important employers. The University of Wisconsin - Madison is located here and employed 21,727 faculty and staff as of March 2014, making it one of the largest employers. Software developer jobs and software programmer jobs are becoming popular to big companies such as Epic System, a company specializing in electronic health records. In turn, Madison has become an important center for high-tech jobs in the upper Midwest.

Madison Employment Trends

The overall outlook for Madison is positive. Unemployment declined steadily in the 10 months prior to May 2014 as businesses moved to the city to take advantage of the technology-savvy workforce, leading to a state-wide decrease of 1 percent in unemployment. Madison weathered the recession better that many other cities. In June 2009, during the recession, unemployment peaked at 6.6 percent. Madison's recovery and future prosperity now seem well-assured.

Madison Cost of Living

The cost of living in Madison can be surprisingly high to newcomers, especially the property tax rate and the cost of housing. In fact, in June 2014, the overall cost-of-living was 2.8 percent higher than the national average. While some of that can be attributed to housing costs, Madison also has a higher goods and services index and gas prices. Madison does have excellent services, including public transportation, to compensate for some of the expense.
