May Trends looks at Alaskans who work more than one job, where they tend to work, and how much they make. Nearly 11 percent of the population has a secondary job.
This issue also profiles fish and wildlife biologists, of which Alaska has the largest concentration in the nation. Because federal law and the state constitution mandate protection of these resources, fish and wildlife biologists play a key role in the state’s economy and in balancing the needs of many user groups.
Finally, Trends looks at race/ethnicity and unemployment in Alaska as shown in the most recent release of the American Community Survey, and using the same source, outlines a few more facts about Alaskans you don’t usually see in articles about population characteristics.
