Sitges: Employment Structure (1996)

Diversification in an economy is a sign of health. If a country, or region within a country, becomes dependent for its economic survival on one industry and that industry fails then the social consequences can be devastating. Statistically, Sitges has a high percentage of people at risk to any decline in tourism and travel (see employment structure below). In reality, many people commute to Barcelona and elsewhere in the surrounding region.
