Momentum (IV)

And here is the public-sector labour force expressed as a share of the entire provincial employed labour force. Again, Newfoundland and Labrador's status as the top-ranking province in this measure is of long standing, but even against this historical backdrop there has been a sharp uptick in recent years, with new historical highs.

If current trends in public- and private-sector employment continue, by mid-decade one in every four working persons in the province will work in some capacity for the provincial government or other provincial public-sector entity.

* Previous caveat about 2009 data applies.
