Atlantic City, New Jersey Regional Economic and Workforce Profile Project

In 2007, the Heldrich Center worked with the Atlantic City-based Casino Reinvestment Development Authority to identify and help address the workforce and economic competitiveness advantages within the Atlantic City, New Jersey region. The Heldrich Center worked with local economic development officials to assess and understand the job demands of the most prominent industries they deemed critical to the development and operation of major development projects planned over the next 10 years, as well as assess and understand the workforce supply available to meet future demand. The project resulted in an economic profile of the hospitality and retail and construction and transportation industries, as well as a profile of the regional workforce that included text, charts, graphs, and maps.
