In June of 2006, the Northwest Center of Excellence for Marine Manufacturing & Technology, in collaboration with the state department of Community, Trade and Economic Development (CTED) and the Northwest Marine Trade Association (NMTA), contracted with Washington State University’s Social and Economic Sciences Research Center to conduct a web-based survey of boat manufacturers and repairers in Washington State.
The goal of the Marine Industry Employment and Compensation Survey was to create a rich database of information for the marine industry in Washington State. Employers, colleges, economic and workforce development organizations, and other service providers can use this information to effectively plan and design new programs and services and to secure funds for program startups and enhancements.
The survey covered the following topics:
Current and projected employment, including current vacancies and forecasted retirements.
Wages and employment benefits.
