Alaska Economic Trends March Issue is Now Available Online
March Trends profiles Alaska’s private-sector social assistance: its scope, typical wages, and how it affects the job market in different areas in the state. Also, learn about the new American Community Survey, which is the primary current source of small area population information. We explain its accuracy, how it should be used, and how it differs from the U.S Census. Finally, see what this data source has to say about how people get to work in Alaska. The ACS shows our methods of travel differ quite a bit from the nation as a whole.
