Nearly every state in the U.S. added construction jobs from March 2015 to March 2016, according to analysis of Labor Department data by the Associated General Contractors of America (AGC).

Forty-four states and the District of Columbia saw year-over-year employment gains in the sector, while 28 states added jobs between February and March.

“Construction employment growth occurred in all regions in the latest 12 months,” says Ken Simonson, AGC’s chief economist. “The only soft spots in construction demand and employment are in states that rely on energy extraction for a large segment of their economy. The economic diversity across the leading job-growth states suggest that construction will continue to add to jobs gains in much of the country.”

California added the most construction jobs (39,600 jobs, 5.6 percent) between March 2015 and March 2016, followed by Florida (27,500 jobs, 6.5 percent), New York (17,300 jobs, 4.9 percent) and Massachusetts (16,000 jobs, 11.9 percent). Hawaii added the highest percentage of jobs during that span, (20.9 percent, 7,000 jobs), followed by Rhode Island (13.3 percent, 2,200 jobs), Massachusetts and Nevada (11.6 percent, 7,500 jobs).

North Dakota lost the highest percent and total number of construction jobs (-15.7 percent, -5,700 jobs) for the year. Other states that lost jobs include Alaska (-8.7 percent, -1,600 jobs), Wyoming (-7.1 percent, -1,700 jobs), Kansas (-5.6 percent, -3,400 jobs) and West Virginia (-1.2 percent, -400 jobs). Construction employment was unchanged in Connecticut.

Other states adding a high number of jobs for the month include Georgia (4,300 jobs, 2.5 percent), Illinois (4,100 jobs, 1.9 percent), Colorado (3,900 jobs, 2.5 percent) and Iowa (3,600 jobs, 4.4 percent). West Virginia (4.5 percent, 1,400 jobs) added the highest percentage of jobs, followed by Iowa, Nevada (4.1 percent, 3,000 jobs) and Hawaii (3.3 percent, 1,300 jobs).

Construction employment declined in 22 states during the past month and held steady in Washington, D.C. California shed more construction jobs than any other state (-7,400 jobs, -1.0 percent), followed by Indiana (-2,300 jobs, -1.7 percent), Missouri (-2,000 jobs, -1.7 percent) and Minnesota (-1,600 jobs, -1.3 percent). Arkansas lost the highest percentage of construction jobs between February and March (-3.0 percent, -1,500 jobs), followed by New Hampshire (-2.3 percent, -600 jobs) and Alaska (-2.3 percent, -400 jobs).
