NEW YORK – Jan. 8, 2014 – Pew Charitable Trusts – an independent, non-partisan research and public policy organization, projected expected employment growth for each U.S. state in 2014.

To compare states with different populations, the study compared the anticipated percentage of job growth. For example, in Texas, Pew estimates that the state will see 307,590 new jobs for a 2.75 percent increase.

The top state for jobs? North Dakota with an expected growth rate of 3.56 percent, though that translates into only 15,902 jobs due to the state’s smaller population. At the bottom of the list, Washington, D.C., is expected to grow jobs by only 0.75 percent in 2014.
