    New Jersey Features Steady Healthcare Job Market

    According to an April 2011 article by labor market analyst Jason Timian in “N.J. Labor Market Views,” the growth of New Jersey’s economy often depends on the health care job market.

    Timian, an economist with the state's Department of Labor and Workforce Development, cites job data from 1990 to 2011, which shows that the health care industry is responsible for three of every five new jobs created in New Jersey during that time.

    Recently, the health care job market in New Jersey has been pretty stable. Timian writes, “Over the past two decades, the health care industry has added nearly 160,000 new jobs in New Jersey… Its share of the total employment in New Jersey has increased from 7.5 percent in 1990 to 11.0 percent in 2009.”

    This stability even includes past and current recessions. “Despite three recessions…the health care industry has never failed to grow by at least 1.2 percent year over year,” Timian writes. “This resilience from economic downturns, even during the most dire of times, proves that health care is the primary driver of the labor market in New Jersey.”

    Timian also includes a breakdown of the top healthcare jobs in New Jersey from 2009. One of the jobs listed is Medical Assistant. As part of a healthcare team, medical assistants help prepare patients for exams, take vital signs, and administer injections.

    Timian explains that medical assistants in New Jersey face a positive job outlook. “Medical assistants are projected to experience robust growth,” he says, “adding more than 20 percent to their 2008 estimate by 2018.”
