The labor-market engagement index provides a summary description of the relative intensity of labor market engagement and human capital in a neighborhood. This is based upon the level of employment, labor force participation, and educational attainment in a census tract.
These layers display the gap in the percent of advertised jobs posted for an industry and the percent of jobseekers applying for positions in that industry. This analysis takes job seeker information from people who registered
with jobs.mo.gov in 2016, and compares it to employer job ads during the same time period. The analysis was done by the Missouri Economic Research and Information Center (MERIC), CARES digitized the regions used in the report and used the data tables to create the map layers. The original MERIC report can be found at https://meric.mo.gov/media/pdf/missouri-labor-supply-and-demand-analysis
