Jobs Recovery Long Time Off in Some States

Nov 15, 2011 9:57am

Regional economists from respected analytics firm IHS Global Insight have compiled their predictions as to when states will return to their “peak” level of employment (the high-water mark we all enjoyed during the boom years).

Oil boom state North Dakota got back to its peak level in the first quarter of 2010. Alaska crossed the mark in the third quarter of 2010. Unlucky Michigan, Rhode Island and Nevada are literally off the chart – economists are only willing to say they’ll be back sometime after 2017.
