Immigration is a key driver of US labor force and employment growth and reduced immigration in 2020 and 2021 contributes to the recent decrease in labor supply. In this issue of the
Quarterly Economics Briefing, we address these questions:
- How much did foreign-born workers contribute to labor force growth before the pandemic?
- How much has reduced immigration during the pandemic affected the labor force?
- What industries and occupations employ the largest shares of foreign-born workers?
- What does this mean for the labor market and workers compensation?
Insurance executives identified the economy and the shifting workforce/workplace as some of the top concerns for the workers compensation industry. The
Q4 2022 QEB dives into these topics and more as part of NCCI’s ongoing commitment to deliver the latest insights on top-of-mind issues.
