Job Creation and Entrepreneurship

An economy geared to the promotion of job creation and entrepreneurship is the only way to ensure that those looking to start or grow a business and those seeking quality work can blossom. We must ensure that government policies spur business and attract the best and brightest by giving a voice to those who create jobs and free Ohio’s risk-takers from government actions that impede growth.

Reports

 

Ohio by the Numbers

The Buckeye Institute's monthly Ohio by the Numbers report compares Ohio to the other states in overall private sector job growth over several distinct time spans in order to get a picture of Ohio's relative economic health since 1990.  The periods analyzed are: from 1990 until the present day, from peak privatesector employment in 2000 through the present day and from the beginning of the current decade to the present day.

The reports also compare the cumulative private sector job gains made in right-to-work states vs. forced union states over the same time periods in order to show the impact of worker freedom on job creation.

Ohio by the Numbers uses the latest employment numbers from the Bureau of Labor Statistics each month.
