There shouldn’t be any surprises here for folks who’ve seen prior iterations of this graph. The leisure and hospitality sector has been in first place for a while, with government and education/health jockeying for second and professional services bringing up fourth place. Similarly, construction has been the big loser for quite a while, followed by financial activities, retail, and manufacturing — usualy in about that same order.
