Ah, so much to write about, so little time. I haven’t followed up on our #WhereDidTheJobsGo analysis in a bit so I thought I’d throw up some more charts I’ve generated.
One thought I wanted to explore is what job declines looked like for Bermudians vs. non-Bermudians (excluding spouses and PRCs) on a relative basis. \
Basically, if I zero the y-axis, plot Bermudians on the left, non-Bermudians on the right and adjust the upper values so that they start at the same spot, what do the declines look like relative to each other?
But what does it all mean?
Well, so far we’re seeing a story that non-Bermudian jobs on a relative basis declined first and more aggressively than Bermudian jobs across all job categories except Elementary Occupations.
It adds more questions to dig into. Which jobs within major categories declined the most? Why did Elementary Occupations see an increase rather than a decline? Why did Plant and Machine Operators and Assemblers witness a spike in 2015?
Lots of questions, few answers as of yet.
