The Middlesex County economy illustrates some of the trends impacting the entire State of New Jersey. With New Brunswick as its hub, Middlesex County is a diverse business community with much to offer start-ups and established businesses.
“Middlesex County can largely be seen as a microcosm mirroring some of the key cultural and economic trends of the entire state. One such example – albeit on a smaller scale – is the impact of automation, and a new report from the Rutgers John J. Heldrich Center for Workforce Development shows just how much that trend between the state and county plays out. Middlesex County boasts over 829,000 residents, and hundreds of thousands more students and visitor workers who travel to the county on a near-daily basis….county residents speak 51 languages other than English at home, according to the study. Forty-two percent of county residents have at least a bachelor’s degree, compared to 38.1 percent of all New Jersey residents.”
