Salisbury ranks as the 42nd fastest-growing job market in the country according to the June 2016 U.S. Conference of Mayors Metro Jobs Report. In July, Wicomico County had the highest number of people working since 1967 and an unemployment rate of 4.7 percent, which is less than the national average, according to the Salisbury Independent (10/20/2016). Salisbury’s metropolitan statistical area has a population of 400,000 individuals who live in Wicomico, Worcester, and Somerset Counties in Maryland and Sussex County in Delaware. An increase in consumer spending in Salisbury is due to its position as the largest town in the region that provides shopping, food service, and medical care. Growth is seen in the health care, education, and hospitality industries.
