Rowan County Posts Highest Growth in Annual Employee Payroll

The North Carolina Free Enterprise Foundation (NCFREE) recently measured all North Carolina counties in three categories: increases in annual employee payroll, total number of businesses, and average employee count, each one tabulating the change from 2012 to 2018 using U.S. Census data. The results are strong for Rowan County, which is shown to have far and away the highest growth in annual employee payroll, as well as significant growth in the number of businesses and average employee count.
