Anchorage Employment Report: March 2022

Job numbers for the month of February show an increase of 5,200 jobs up from February of 2021, a time that was impacted by COVID-19 shutdowns. Almost all sectors saw modest to significant growth with the exception of oil & gas, health care, Information, and federal and state government.

The number of single-family homes sold year-to-date has increased by 2.9%. The average sale price so far in 2022 has risen by 10%. Single-family home listings decreased by 44% compared to the same period in 2021, suggesting that the housing market is falling deeper into a seller’s market. With national inflation at an all-time high, we are interested to see what the federal government does as we progress into 2022. The top five employers posting jobs are Providence Health & Services, Humana, Anchorage School District, Alaska Native Tribal Health Consortium, and the State of Alaska.
