​​Atlanta Employment Update​

Christa DiLalo • 2/9/2023


Metro Atlanta’s labor market continued to grow through the end of 2022. Job numbers recovered rapidly from the effects of the global pandemic, and despite recent national economic headwinds, metro employment figures climbed steadily. By year-end 2022, Atlanta recorded 22.8% job growth since April 2020, outperforming the U.S. growth rate of 11.7%. Every industry sector expanded, though the most significant increases occurred in Leisure & Hospitality (80.2%), Information (39.4%), and Trade, Transportation, & Utilities (23.5%), bolstering the retail, office, and industrial sectors respectively. Atlanta maintains one of the most highly diversified workforces in the country, and this report provides a snapshot of its strong labor market and economic recovery.
