Our Local Economy - Jamestown Data

On the one hand, there is a limited number of jobs in Jamestown compared to other towns in Rhode Island. On the other hand, over half of all people who work in Jamestown also live in Jamestown - a higher percentage than any town other than New Shoreham! How can Jamestown continue to sustain most of its workforce with local residents?  Check out the RI Department of Labor and Training's Labor Market Information Data Center for more facts and figures.
