Tioga County Employment Data

Pennsylvania CareerLink I Tioga County Demographics: 2012 Census Data

Analysis indicated that the potential labor force of Tioga County will continue to grow through 2010 and then start to decline as baby-boomers begin to retire. The retirement of older workers will be exacerbated by the relatively small population born during the 1980’s and early 1990’s. The labor force will also be aggravated by the out-migration of youth. Without significant and unexpected population growth, the size of the labor force will limit the possibilities for economic expansion.

A trainable workforce is critical to meet the expanding needs of our employers. TCDC is committed to assist in assuring our county can meet required workforce needs. Our corporation works aggressively with our Public School Districts, Mansfield University, Pennsylvania College of Technology North Campus, Northern Tier Industry and Education Consortium (NTIEC), the NTRPDC Workforce Investment Board and the private sector on such programs as the Tioga County School To Work Initiative, Customized Job Training (CJT), Job Creation Tax Credit, PA, WEDnet and other education and training programs to assure a trained labor force is available. We will support efforts to assure post-secondary educational and training programs which meet the needs of employers are available and to educate employers about existing workforce improvement programs and solicit their involvement. The Commonwealth’s Stay Invent the Future program and similar efforts will be utilized to provide incentives to the youth of the county to invest their education and training in Tioga County.
