Maryland Leads All States in Science and Engineering Employment Concentration

Maryland Leads All States in Science and Engineering Employment Concentration

In 2011, about 180,000 workers were employed in science and engineering (S&E) occupations in Maryland, representing 7% of all workers, the highest concentration among states. A National Science Foundation study details the concentrations of S&E workers as an integral part of a region's innovative capacity and an important predictor of a region's population, productivity, and technological growth. The study found that Montgomery County had the 2nd most biological and environmental life sciences workers and the 8th most physical scientists among local areas.
