Maryland's Growth Industry Tool - Workforce Information & Performance

The Growth Industry Tool, known as GIT for short, is a tool that can be used to analyze the Quarterly Census of Employment and Wages (QCEW) data for Maryland. This tool can be used to examine employment, growth, employment concentration, and much more! GIT automatically opens on the statewide map view, and you can use the drop down box to specify a specific industry or to examine the total. On the table view, you can search for a particular industry using the search box and filter by employment concentration. For specific county and local area data, click on your area of choice below. With GIT, columns can be sorted to help you find the data more easily. Make sure to visit the detailed data tabs to get specific industry data, such as Air Transportation, for your area today!

Instructions for searching this table

To Search and filter data:

Use the Check boxes to select either one, multiple, or all items within a category. For example to search for occupations that do not require a post-secondary degree, you might select “High school diploma”, “Less than high school”, and “Some college, no degree” in the Education Value Category.
The same would apply with the Job Training Value and Work Experience Value Categories.

To search specific occupations, you may use the keyword search function. For example if you are looking for occupations related to cooking, you would type in “cook” and then press the enter key on your keyboard. The occupations will include any occupations with “cook” somewhere in the title.

The Annual Total Openings and Percent Change filters work by the user identifying a range using the left and right toggles on the slider bar. Slide the left toggle to the minimum of your desired range, and the right to the maximum of your desired range.

On the bottom of the Tableau frame there will be options to “Undo”, “Redo”, and “Reset”. The undo option will undo the last actions one by one, “Redo” will reverse the actions of “Undo”, and “Reset” will eliminate all changes you make, bringing the visualization back to the original view and filtration.
