Jobs-Based Tool

Use this tool to explore industry specialization for Minnesota and its regions. Industry specialization is usually described in terms of location quotients (LQs), which measures either the relative concentration of jobs or gross regional product (GRP) in a regional industry compared to that industry nationally.

The tool below uses jobs data to illustrate industry specialization. A GRP-based tool is available.
