Cassia County Labor Market Information

Cassia County has experienced declining population over the last 10 years. The population has fallen from 21,283 in 1997 to 20,960 in 2007, a decrease of 1.5 percent. The decrease has resulted from the lack of diversity in the area, as well as dependence on large, primary employers that have pulled out. Efforts to market the two-county area of Cassia and Minidoka have been successful and there have been new businesses relocating to the area thanks to focused economic development efforts, community partnership and the low cost of land and labor. The area has abundant natural resources and recreational opportunities. Burley is located on the Snake River and is a short distance to the City of Rocks National Reserve and the Pomerelle Ski Resort, both popular recreational destinations. The outlook is for a turn around with moderate to high growth forecasts.
