Alaskanomics: The Mat-Su Economy

The Mat-Su Economy

In a recent issue of Trends, the Alaska Department of Labor and Workforce Development highlighted the growth in the Mat-Su economy. The borough has seen a large increase in population, while the state saw a modest growth. Since 2010, population in the Mat-Su has grown by 15 percent, which is much higher than the 4 percent that was seen throughout the state in the same time frame. New home construction is also strong and even during the state’s recession, the Mat-Su saw job growth.
