The Dayton MSA represents a population of just over 800,000, but that only shows part of the picture when it comes to our workforce. The MSA is only three of the region’s 12 counties. When you consider the Dayton Region’s lack of traffic congestion typical of other tier 1 metros, it’s easy to understand why our businesses routinely hire employees who live all over the Dayton Region, as well as from the neighboring metros of Cincinnati, Columbus and eastern Indiana. With average travel time at a mile a minute on our extensive and recently updated highway infrastructure, commute patterns show a ready, mobile workforce.
The Dayton Region has averaged about 3,000 degrees in STEM fields per year and an additional 300+ certificates.
