Rutgers Forecast: New Jersey Economy Adds 56,000 Jobs, Will Hit 2008 Employment Peak in Early 2017

May 6, 2016

“This was the state’s best performance since 2000,” said Nancy Mantell, director of the Rutgers Economic Advisory Service (R/ECON). “We should recover the balance by early 2017, and by the end of the forecast period in 2026, the employment base should be 370,000 jobs, or 9 percent greater than at its 2008 peak of 4.09 million jobs.”
