Life scientists in all occupations | State Indicator S-34
Life Scientists as a Percentage of All Occupations
This indicator represents the percentage of life scientists in a state's workforce. Life scientists are identified from standard occupational codes that include agricultural and food scientists, biological scientists, conservation scientists and foresters, medical scientists, and postsecondary teachers in these fields. A high share of life scientists in a state's workforce could indicate a robust cluster of life sciences industries such as pharmaceutical and medicine manufacturing. States in the top quartile for this indicator also tend to contain agriculture-intensive industries.
