Total employment and location quotient analysis, presented in the charts to the right, underscore the importance of the Health, Business & Financial Services, Advanced Materials, Aerospace & Defense, Information Technologies & Telecommunications (IT), and Transportation & Logistics Industries to the State of Ohio. Top industries also include the Metals & Machining Industries and the Chemicals & Chemical-based Products Industries. Ohio’s industry strengths in Advanced Materials are in large part due to its historic Metals and Machining expertise and its Chemical Industries.
