Economic outlook solid for graduates of trade schools in Maryland

Although Maryland's economy does rely on agriculture, the service, information technology, biotechnology and manufacturing sectors also contribute significantly to the economy. Maryland is one of the top three areas in the nation for life sciences research and development. With Maryland's proximity to Washington, D.C. and the Chesapeake Bay, tourism also contributes to the Old Line State economy. The U.S. Census Bureau reports that in 2009, Maryland's 5.7 million residents had one of the highest median incomes of any state in the nation at $69,272, with unemployment significantly below the national average at 7.4 percent. Bureau of Labor Statistics data for 2009 shows that the mean annual salary for all occupations in Maryland was $49,510, higher than the national figure of $43,460. This mid-Atlantic state has tremendous job potential for students graduating from trade schools in Maryland.
