Policy Update – Manufacturing Employment Trends

The Chicago Metropolitan Agency for Planning (CMAP) released a new Policy Update that examines manufacturing employment and output trends in the seven-county CMAP region and the rest of Illinois from 2001-2016. The policy update focused on the loss of high-skilled manufacturing jobs.

CMAP’s Advanced Manufacturing Scorecard breaks down industries within the manufacturing cluster, along with the occupational training and educational requirements to fill those jobs.
