The Pharmaceutical Manufacturing Industry(PMI) is one of the major fostering industries of high-tech manufacturing industry in Guizhou Province. This study is to analyze the employment ripple effects of the PMI, which is very important to induce policies on the industry and technology development of the PMI, is also important to create jobs of Guizhou. To achieve this aim, the Input-Output table of Guizhou published in 2019 was rewritten into 20 industries, and the PMI is regarde as an exogenous sector rather than an endogenous one. Then, the wage-inducing effect, employment-inducing effect and linkage effects of inter-industry of the PMI were measured using I-O analysis.The results are summarized as follows: First, RMB 1 yuan of production or investment in the PMI induced about 0.1331 yuan of wages and 0.0176 persons of employment. In particular, the Agriculture, Forestry, Animal Husbandry and Fishery industry has been affected heavily by the PMI in overall industries. Second, the backward linkage effect of the PMI is greater than the forward linkage effect, which shows that the PMI can be classifified into fifinal manufacture.
