New Haven's Economic Resilience

With 77,080 jobs, the city of New Haven has the second highest concentration of jobs in Connecticut (and the highest percentage of growth in recent years).  Interestingly,  approximately 7,500 individuals are considered freelance or self-employed workers, a group often hard to identify and quantify, according to a study by DataCore Partners LLC.  New Haven's Economic Development Commission says these include creative sector professionals, academic telecommuters and consultants in a wide array of fields with clients throughout the region.  All of which contributes to what is described as New Haven's "resilience through a recession."
