Nonprofit Sector Leads Michigan Economy

The Michigan job market has been hit particularly hard during the recent recession, with unemployment peaking at 14.9% a year ago and remaining two points above the national rate as recently as November 2010.

From the Philanthropy News Digest, an interesting indicator of continued Michigan malaise:

The nonprofit sector is the fourth-largest employer in Michigan and has been one of the few engines of job growth in the state in recent years, a new report from the Center for Civil Society Studies at Johns Hopkins University finds.

A vigorous nonprofit sector is good to see, especially in tough times, but if it’s among the few growth engines in your state, that’s probably not good news.
