Layers display information about total employment density (jobs per acre) at the census block group level. For additional map layers displaying employment density by industry, browse the Map Room data and navigate to Economic>Labor Market>Employment>Jobs by Industry.
This layer displays information about employment accessibility by estimating the number of jobs within 45 minutes (drive time) from each census block group.
Layer displays the labor force participation rate based on data from the 2011-15 American Community Survey. The labor force participation rate is the percentage of the population that is in the labor force. This metric is different from employment rates, which report the percentage of the labor force that is employed. A person who is in the labor force is either actively employed or actively seeking work. Those who are not in the labor force include persons who are going to school or who are retired, persons with family responsibilities keeping them from employment, and discouraged workers.
