The purpose of this report is to provide California community colleges with a statistical description of regional employment trends between 1991 and 1997. These trends are presented by one-, two-, and three-digit Standard Industrial Classification Codes (SIC) for each of the nine regions of the state: (1) the Bay Area; (2) the Central Coast; (3) the Central Sierra; (4) Northern California; (5) Northern Sacramento Valley; (6) Greater Sacramento; (7) San Diego; (8) San Joaquin Valley; and (9) Southern California. Each chapter contains an overview of employment gains and losses in the region, employment gains and losses by major industrial group, and detailed data on the manufacturing and services sectors, and discusses candidates for additional analysis. The data provide a guide for regional and state decisionmakers as they formulate workforce development policy for the coming year. Report highlights include: (1) the services sector was responsible for 69 percent of the total job growth in the Bay Area, 81 percent in Southern California, and 41 percent in the Central Sierra region; (2) retail trade ranked second to services in Northern California, with 2,763 new jobs; and (3) agriculture ranked second to services in the Central Coast region, with 7,742 new jobs.
