Advertising creates jobs

Through its positive effect on economic growth, advertising helps generate jobs. For example in the US advertising plays a key role in generating 18.2 million of the 126.7 million jobs.1

The wider advertising industry itself also has a positive effect on job creation. The ad industry's contribution to employment growth is two to four times greater than the average for the overall economy.2
