Over the last year, industrial employment in Georgia has increased 0.5 percent, according to the 2013 Georgia Manufacturers Register, an industrial directory published annually by Manufacturers' News Inc. in Evanston, Ill. 

This means Georgia gained 2,603 industrial jobs between April 2011 and April 2012 and now employs 474,267 workers at 9,845 manufacturers.
