Anchorage Employment Report: May 2022

Preliminary job numbers for the month of April show an increase of 5,600 jobs up from April of 2021 that was impacted by COVID-19 shutdowns. Almost all sectors saw modest to significant growth with the exception of information, health care, and federal and state government.

The number of single-family homes sold year-to-date has decreased by 10%. The average sale price so far in 2022 has risen by 7.1%. Single-family home listings decreased by 40% compared to the same period in 2021, suggesting that the housing market remains deep into a seller’s market. With national inflation remaining near an all-time high, a broad range of interest rates will likely increase significantly as we progress into 2022. The top five employers posting jobs in April are Alaska Native Tribal Health Consortium, Providence Health & Services, Anchorage School District, Humana, and the Municipality of Anchorage.
