| Washington has a growing, diversified economy with an increasing percentage of professional and business service jobs. In 2008, the federal government accounted for about 27% of the jobs in Washington, D.C. and as of January 2007, federal employees in the Washington area proper comprised only 14% of the total U.S. government workforce.
Many organizations such as law firms, independent contractors (both defense and civilian), non-profit organizations, lobbying firms, trade unions, industry trade groups, and professional associations have their headquarters in or near D.C. to be close to the federal government. The District has growing industries not directly related to government, especially in the areas of education, finance, public policy, and scientific research. George Washington University, Georgetown University, Washington Hospital Center, Howard University, and Fannie Mae are the top five non-government-related employers in the city.
