The Principality is home to around 36,000 jobs, of which almost half are performed by the local working population. The other half, more than 18,000, are performed by workers who live over the border in the Rhine Valley area near St. Gallen, in Vorarlberg and in the region around Lake Constance and commute to Liechtenstein every day. Almost 60% of workers in Liechtenstein are employed in the services sector, with the financial services sector particularly well-developed. Just below 40% of jobs are in the industrial sector. Unemployment stays very low, over the years the percentage has gone down to 2.4%.
