State and local government employs approximately 184,921 people in the 7-county Minneapolis-Saint Paul region, about 10% of the region’s total employment. While county, city, and state levels of government have unique talent needs, all will continue to experience a growing shortage of education, public service, transportation, administrative and management talent over the next five years. Based on employment patterns, current job vacancies, and official employment outlooks, we can estimate state and local government could experience a talent shortage as large as 13,500 professionals by mid-2024.
