Cincinnati boasts highest private sector employment of any Ohio metro

Cincinnati boasts highest private sector employment of any Ohio metro.

Cities drive Ohio’s economy, and new Census Bureau figures show that Cincinnati, Cleveland and Columbus account for nearly 2.5 million private sector jobs in the Buckeye State. Cincinnati has the most private sector jobs (874,547) overall, but Cleveland has the greatest number of businesses (52,149). More from The Business Journals:

America’s three metropolitan giants contain more than 1.1 million private-sector businesses, a number that is greater than the combined total for the next eight markets…New York unsurprisingly leads the nation in a second category, private-sector employment, with 7.27 million workers. It’s followed by Los Angeles at 4.85 million and Chicago at 3.80 million.
