Oklahoma bioscience sector employment slips in last decade, report says

A report by Battelle and the Biotechnology Industry Organization said biotech jobs pay more than average in Oklahoma, and the sector directly employs more than 8,800 people.
FROM STAFF REPORTS Published: June 26, 2012

The Battelle/BIO report noted that studying the effects of bioscience employment isn't an easy process. That's because there's no single industry classification code for bioscience.

“Defining biosciences industries requires analyzing standard industrial classifications at the most detailed level to identify those involved in bioscience-related activities,” the report stated.

“These bioscience industries fall into a broad array of higher-level industries, such as chemical and food manufacturing, professional, scientific and technical services and, increasingly, distribution services.”
