• The Sacramento region’s labor market growth has outpaced the State over the past 1-, 3-, and 5-year periods.

• The construction, health care, leisure and hospitability, and business and professional services sectors have led the region’s job growth over the past 5 years.

• The region is not producing enough graduates or skilled labor force in the areas where labor demand is the highest.

• Job openings are especially high in the construction and health care sectors, showing a lack of available workers in the region’s fastestgrowing sectors.

• Constraints in key sectors, such as construction, may spill over to other related job categories.

• Action needs to be taken to align the region’s labor force with the skills in demand in sectors with a high number of job openings.
