Job Gap Reports

Job Gap reports bring together data about the labor force, job market, occupations, wages, skills, and geographic distribution of jobs and workers in a metropolitan area, region, or state.

These studies provide information and analysis that can be the basis for workforce and economic development plans, and serve as benchmarks to measure change.

In 1999 the JOTF published a job gap report entitled Baltimore Area Jobs and Low-Skill Job Seekers: Assessing the Gaps. This was the first such study of the Baltimore region, and was widely read by the business community, state and local government decision makers, and others.

The JOTF released its second job gap report, Baltimore’s Choice: Workers & Jobs for a Thriving Economy, on January 27, 2003. In addition to an overview of the Baltimore region’s economy and detailed information about jobs, skills, wages, and the labor force, Baltimore’s Choice includes a discussion of two hard-to-serve populations: ex-offenders and school dropouts. Recommendations for action are directed to nonprofit organizations, the private sector, and government.
