Madera County Labor Market Profile
Madera County is centrally located in California’s San Joaquin Valley – bordered on the north by Mariposa and Merced, by Fresno to the south and by Mono County to the east. Madera County’s diverse geography has resulted in distinct economies and labor markets, with the Agriculture and Manufacturing sectors predominantly on the valley floor, while the Tourism and Service sectors lead in the eastern area of the County. The diverse labor market, geography, and population, along with relatively low land and housing costs, have resulted in Madera County enjoying one of the fastest growth rates in the State of California.
