Science and engineering workforce: Florida ranked 35th in percentage of workforce in S&E

A new National Science Foundation report shows that Florida is not a great science and engineering state, despite its aeronautical heritage.

Only 3.0% of Florida’s workforce is in science and engineering occupations, well behind the national average of 4.1% and even trailing Georgia (3.8%).  Florida is tied with Alabama.

The leading states are Maryland (7.0%), Massachusetts (6.4%), Virginia (6.2%), Colorado (6.1%) and Washington (6.1%).  The District of Columbia leads all states at 10.7%.

The NSF spreadsheet – sorted by me to rank these percentages, is linked below.
