n A report by Smartest Dollar ranking U.S. cities with the most innovative workers ranked the Grand Junction area 140th among all small U.S. metropolitan areas.
The composite innovation index, an employment-weighted average of occupation-level innovation scores for each location, led to a score of 58.61 for Grand Junction, using data from the U.S. Department of Labor’s ONET system and the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.
According to the report, in the Grand Junction area, 1.9% of workers, or 1,200, work in “the most innovative jobs.” The average annual wage for all workers is $51,520, while the average annual wage for workers in the most innovative jobs is $62,974.
“Innovation can drive economic growth by creating new jobs or industries, improving efficiency and productivity, and raising quality of life,” the organization said in a statement. “While jobs in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) fields are most commonly thought of as quintessentially innovative fields, innovative jobs are found in a wide range of disciplines, from the arts to education to entertainment.”
