Like the rest of the U.S., San Diego’s manufacturing employment has declined, going from 113,900 (9.25 percent of the total nonfarm public and private workforce) in April 2002 to 90,600 (7.31 percent of the workforce) 10 years later, according to data from the National University System Institute for Policy Research.
