Boston’s jobs and economic outlook
area code 339

Boston is one of America’s oldest cities, famous for Paul Revere’s house, the USS Constitution, and red brick sidewalks that feel more at home in Georgian times than in the 21st century. Even its ballpark, Fenway Park, is the oldest in the league. But that doesn’t mean Boston isn’t a great place to do business today. Its age-old traditions have meant a long history of building resources in education, healthcare, music, and the arts. And its many educational institutions result in a wealth of young people giving the streets an energized, youthful vibe.

In this Eastern Time Zone city, the top industries from census.gov are:

Educational services, and health care and social assistance
Professional, scientific, and management, and administrative and waste management services
Finance and insurance, and real estate and rental and leasing

Boston’s Suffolk County has an unemployment rate of 9.7%, but residents might find opportunities with one of the city’s biggest employers. Here are the top ten in town: Massachusetts General Hospital, Fidelity Investments, Harvard University, Brigham And Women's Hospital, State Street, Massachusetts Institute Of Technology, Liberty Mutual Insurance, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, Commonwealth Of Massachusetts, and Boston University.

Boston households average $113,307 in average income, well above the national average (around $80,000). It’s also higher than surrounding New England states. As the region’s economic hub, that’s not surprising.

And that economy is getting stronger all the time. The state’s new business applications blossomed by 3% from 2019 to 2020 as more Bostonians started their own ventures. In this city full of educational resources, it also stands to reason that many of these new ventures survive. The state’s overall startup survival rate is a healthy 80.50%.

New England has seen population shifts as the nation moves toward the suburbs and sunbelt cities. In Boston, the population within city limits didn’t grow from 2019 to 2020 and instead shrunk by .18%.

While you may not even live in the Boston area, you won’t have trouble joining this large, vibrant city and its bustling business scene.
