Update: Most populous state in the U.S. attracts only 1.6% of reshored jobs

Posted by Gino DiCaro, VP, Communications on May 15, 2017

For the first time in decades, more manufacturing jobs are returning to the United States than are going offshore, but California, the most populous state in the Union, is struggling to compete for its share. Last week, the Reshoring Initiative, based out of Kildeer Illinois, updated their cumulative numbers of reported reshored jobs since 2010 to include the year 2016.

While the country continues to benefit from a substantial amount of companies finding fertile ground back in the U.S., California only gained 1.6 percent of the total share. Specifically we attracted 5,229 jobs of the total 325,996*.  On a positive note, our percentage is up a bit from 1.1 percent in last year's 2013-2015 report.

You’ll find the data in charts #8 and #9 at their report here.

 

*This is the reported number. The Initiative uses a formula for the larger total number in the narrative, which is 338,000. That would likely bring California’s percentage lower.

 

** This blog has been updated since it posted to reflect a mistake in the data time period. It was from 2013 to 2016, not 2010 to 2016.
