About the Data

A location quotient measures how concentrated an industry is in a given area compared to the US. A location quotient of 1 indicates that employment is just as concentrated in your region as in the rest of the country. A location quotient of 2 indicates that there is twice as much employment in an industry in your region as we would expect given national employment patterns.

GIT groups industries into three categories: Growth, Emerging and Other.

  1. Growth Industries have a location quotient greater than one and positive over-the-year growth. These industries are specialized in your region and are expanding.
  2. Emerging Industries have a location quotient less than one and positive over-the-year growth. These industries are not yet specialized in your region, but they are expanding.
  3. Other Industries have negative over-the-year growth.
