In 2017, Michigan made great strides in increasing its number of active apprenticeships, rising eight spots in its overall rank. Michigan's active apprenticeship rate is on par with the “Top Ten” average and exceeds the peer state average. 

What It Is: The number of total active apprentices per 1,000 working age people (ages 20 through 64, inclusive).

Why It Matters: A higher number of apprentices indicates states where skilled workers are receiving valuable on-the-job training.
