California’s labor force participation is shrinking, mainly because of an aging population. But significant gaps across demographic groups are also a concern. How can California remove barriers to work, boost participation, and build a strong workforce for years to come?
Sarah Bohn, Marisol Cuellar Mejia, Julien Lafortune, Vicki Hsieh
We take a look at where California's economy has been, where it might be headed, and how we can better insulate Californians against future upheavals.
Sarah Bohn, Caroline Danielson, Sara Kimberlin, Patricia Malagon
Most poor families in California are working. Poverty rates among working adults are highest in southern, coastal California.
Mark Baldassare, Dean Bonner, Lauren Mora, Deja Thomas
PPIC's latest survey finds that almost nine in ten Californians believe there is a mental health crisis in the US. Also, most Californians are now less comfortable making a major purchase like a home or a car compared to six months ago.
Jenny Duan, Daniel Payares-Montoya
Average hourly wages for private-sector workers have increased 15% since just prior to the COVID-19 pandemic. But in many parts of the economy, wages are not rising fast enough to keep up with inflation.
Sarah Bohn, Marisol Cuellar Mejia, Jenny Duan, Julien Lafortune
While employment is higher than it was before the pandemic, California’s economy could face headwinds in the coming months. We look at how seven major regions are faring and discuss the factors driving job growth in different parts of the state.
Sarah Bohn, Dean Bonner, Jenny Duan
Looking back over the past three years, how did the economic challenges of the pandemic—and the state’s response—evolve? And what are Californians’ economic circumstances today?
Sarah Bohn, Marisol Cuellar Mejia, Vicki Hsieh
Women in California are now employed at higher rates than prior to the pandemic, while employment among men has yet to recover. What do these trends – and employment patterns in the care sector—say about the shifting balance of work and caregiving as the pandemic recedes?
Rachel Lawler, Marisol Cuellar Mejia, Sarah Bohn
The nature of job loss and recovery during the pandemic varies across California’s regions. And these differences are reflected in residents’ views on employment opportunities in their part of the state.
