Anchorage Employment Report: September 2023

Anchorage added about 1,700 net jobs from September 2022 to September 2023 (up from August’s 1,400 jobs gain over 2022)

Despite Health Care employers hiring aggressively since 2020, total sector employment fell slightly and then stabilized in 2021 and 2022. In 2023, however, Health Care employment crept up, and the 21,300 sector jobs in September were the most reported since before the COVID pandemic.
