Take a peek at San Antonio’s High Growth Employment Sector

October 1, 2012

San Antonio’s economy remains one of the healthiest in Texas and the nation. And that’s thanks in large part to the region’s booming biomedical sector.

In looking at occupational data released by the Texas Workforce Commission and theU.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, six out of 10 of the projected high-growth professions in Bexar County between now and 2014 will be in the medical industry. The other high-growth professions are in technology and education.

The health care and biotechnology industry has an annual economic impact of $15.3 billion. This industry collectively employs 112,762 people in San Antonio.

The San Antonio Business Journal has produced a slideshow of the top occupations in Bexar County along with local wage data per occupation. With the exception of wage and salary information for network systems and data communications analysts, and computer software engineers, which are national figures in the slideshow, all other wage data is for Bexar County.
