Which company is the biggest employer in your state?

No matter where you live, you’re sure to find countless companies hiring. (If you need proof, a quick job search on Monster will tell you that.) But have you ever wondered which of your proximal companies do the most hiring?

In a recent analysis of data from financial news site 24/7 Wall St. and government management magazine Governing, Olivet Nazarene University identified and mapped the largest employer in each state. The data shows that retailers, universities and health care companies are among the biggest employers in the U.S.

As far as individual hirers go, Wal-Mart dominates the map, as it is the largest employer in 14 states—many of them in the South. The U.S. Military follows closely behind the big box retailer; it provides the most jobs in nine states.

In the Northeast, health care companies dominate the labor market, while the West offers more of a variety, with the companies like Boeing in Washington and MGM Grand in Nevada as the states’ top employers.
