Economic Indicators

STEM education carries significant economic benefits.  STEM-related fields position students for high-paying jobs in growing industries, many of which, like aerospace and marine science, are becoming increasingly important to Southwest Alaska. 

STEM workers earn on average $14,000 more per year over other occupations at every education level (Carnevale, Smith, & Melton, 2011).

 

 

Almost all STEM jobs are projected to grow faster than other occupations.

 

Unemployment in STEM occupations is also much lower than others.
