76.8% of the town's employment comes from the service industries, with 25.3% of this figure accounted for by Distribution, Hotel, and Food services. Only 24.7% of employment is to be found in Public Administration, Health, and Education which is lower than the national average of 27% but, nevertheless, still a significant proportion. Manufacturing may only supply 13.9% of all employment in the town, but this is higher than the national average and may well be attributed to the presence of the Heinz food manufacturing facility in Wigan which is the largest of its kind in Europe and as such employs a large number of staff in the area.
