California leads U.S. states in science and engineering employment, according to a new report from researchers at the National Science Foundation In 2011, the state employed 786,653 people in science and engineering jobs - nearly 14% of the 5.7 million workers in such occupations across the United States. New York and Texas were also science jobs standouts - but with 328,851 and 450,316 jobs, respectively, they trail the Golden State. The two local regions with the highest science and engineering employment were also in California: the Santa Clara or Silicon Valley area, with 143,329 jobs; and the Los Angeles region, with 141,719 jobs.
