A Leap in the Right Direction – Corona’s Labor Force jumps 23 rankings in State Survey!
The Census Bureau has released the latest estimates from the American Community Survey for all cities in California with a population of 60,000 or more with sufficient data to estimate the percent in labor force. HomeArea.com has crunched the numbers and the rankings are in. The City of Corona is headed in the right direction and is up 23 rankings.
Previously listed as #45 at 66.4% in labor force, the City of Corona is continually increasing the workforce and is now at #22 and 68.9%, higher than the state average. The California percent in labor force from the latest estimates is 63.7% and has risen 0.6% from 63.3%.
People in the labor force include those employed as a civilian or the armed forces plus those that are unemployed and looking for work. Students that aren't working, homemakers, retirees, and institutionalized people are not included in the labor force. Having a high percentage of people in the labor force can help local governments because of an increase in the amount of tax revenue and fewer costs for social programs.
