2006 AEDC Economic Forecast Report

AEDC predicts that 1,900 new jobs will be added to the Anchorage economy in 2006, an increase of 1.3 percent over 2005. The service sector will once again account for most of this growth, led by health care, professional and business services, trade, and leisure and hospitality services. Government employment is also expected to rise in 2006. Increased state spending stemming from a billion dollar budget surplus will likely bring in more state and municipal job opportunities to the Anchorage area. Natural resource and construction jobs will continue to grow,  bolstering the goods producing sector for another year.
