Tracking jobs in clean industries in New England
AbstractTracking jobs in clean industries—often called “green jobs”—is difficult because, unlike the high-technology sector, the clean-industries sector lacks a standard definition of which industries the sector actually comprises. This article explores four definitions of the sector: two defined by measures developed by analysts at highly respected institutions, and two defined by measures we created based on widely used databases. We use these definitions to analyze the composition and concentration of jobs in clean industries in New England and each state in the region and compare these figures with the national average. In doing so we show how the findings vary with the definition of the clean-industries sector.
