A Brookings Institution study released Tuesday finds that STEM workers are more in demand in Baltimore than in much of the rest of the country.

The Baltimore area ranks 19th in the nation for the average number of days STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) jobs remain open: 40.4 days.

Among east coast cities, Baltimore ranked fourth behind greater Washington, D.C. (42.9 days), greater Sarasota, Fla. (41.4 days) and greater Charleston, S.C. (40.6), according to the Brookings report. Two California cities — Stockton and San Jose — topped the list.

The report found that nearly half of all job openings in the Baltimore area required STEM skills (which ranks eighth in the country) and, of those openings, many required a bachelor’s degree.

In June, a U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation study found that Maryland boasted 217,000 STEM workers statewide, or 7.7 percent of the state’s total workforce. The study ranked Maryland atop its Technology and Entrepreneurship list for the third straight year, as Technical.ly Baltimore reported.

In 2013, a state study of Census data found more than 100,000 people in STEM occupations in the Baltimore area alone.
