Good news, Jersey.

The unemployment rate in the Garden State is declining. 

The rate dropped to 4.3 percent in June -- the lowest statewide rate in more than a decade, according to the New Jersey Department of Labor and Workforce Development.

According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, about 4,007,470 people are employed in New Jersey as of 2017, up 51,000 from 2016. 

An analysis of employment data by NJ Advance Media shows some jobs are growing faster than others. 

The fastest growing job in the state between 2016 and 2017? Mathematician.

The number of mathematicians in New Jersey grew more than 200 percent in just one year. That might seem like a lot. But the mathematician workforce is tiny. Today, there's only 230 people employed as mathematicians throughout the entire state.  

NJ Advance Media analyzed employment data from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics and identified 25 of the fastest growing jobs in the state by finding jobs that added at least 1,000 people to the workforces between 2016 and 2017.

*NOTE: Some of the jobs listed in the data did not report employment numbers either in 2016 or 2017. Therefore, it was impossible to determine how employment in those jobs may have changed.
