Heading Down: The Loss of Massachusetts Headquarters
The Loss of Massachusetts Headquarters Author(s): John Friar and Megan Gay — Publication date: 2010-03-05 Category: Economic Opportunity Abstract: This brief is the second in a series on employment trends in Massachusetts from 1990 to 2007, an eighteen- year period leading up to the current recession. From 1990 to 2007, the U.S. experienced net job growth of 26.6%; in the same period Massachusetts experienced a net job loss of 0.3%, losing a total of 11,816 jobs. From 1990 until 2003, Massachusetts job trends roughly followed US trends: losing jobs in 1990-1992 and 2001-2003 due to recessions and gaining jobs in intervening years.
